Default importing geometry from image files
Posts: n/a
I have images (for example bmp, jpeg) of my flow models. How can I import them in GAMBIT to build my flow geometries and then proceed with meshing, followed by FLUENT modeling? Can anyone please give me some suggestions? Thanks in advance!

You can't do this directly in gambit.

Essentially you will need some other program (probably a CAD package - such as AutoCAD) that will let you "draw round" the geometry in your images, and then you can save something in a format that gambit can read.

If the geometry is fairly simply, it might be as easy to load your images in a paint program and manually transcribe the coordinates of interesting features.
