Export grids from FLUENT
Hi All

I am trying to export grids from FLUENT 6.0 to use with a different CFD package. I am finding that both the CGNS and the PATRAN neutral formats are corrupt and do not work cleanly. The former has missing boundary information while the latter has only quad elements (no hexes). Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help. Monica

Export it from tgrid. The conversion into tri and quad elements is just a very nice feature from the fluent people to prevent you from using other packages.

Re: Export grids from FLUENT
Out of curiosity, what other package are you trying to import the grid to?

The funny thing: even fluent itself cannot reimport the previously exported mesh.

This "feature" is well known since many version of fluent but they are not willing to correct it.
