Default Surfaces
Posts: n/a
I have a large 3D mesh with lots of surfaces, lines, rakes, etc. defined on it to allow some post-processing. I have another mesh, same dimensions, but more cells. Is there a way I can import all my pre-defined surfaces into my finer mesh? If not, can I find the x,y,z dimensions of my existing surfaces so I can put them onto my new mesh, without having to work out the dimensions all over again?

Thanks in advance,

If you defined your surfaces in FLUENT, you should be able to "import" them in the new mesh as follows:

1) Open cas and datfile in which you defined surfaces.

2) Open the file containing the new mesh without exiting FLUENT.

3) Save the new case file.
