Default Plot3d grids > Gambit > Fluent 5

Posts: n/a
Dear all,

I have a formated Plot3d aerofoil grid, which I need to import to Gambit1.3, and ultimately export as a *.msh to Fluent5.

Gambit has options to import Plot3d files, but comes up with error messages (i.e. could not filter input files - no nodes read from input) when I import the grid. Can anyone suggest why I may be having this problem???

Also are there any other ways of getting Plot3d grids into Fluent5???

Thank you

There is another way but it may be expensive! If you are from a uiversity then it will be a lot cheaper! Unless you have the need for a new pre processor.

The ICEM CFD pre processor can load plot 3d multiblock meshes. Then convert this to an unstructured mesh and then export a Fluent .msh file (

I hope this is some use to you and good luck.
