Default CAD and CFD
Posts: n/a

Since i'm very pleased of the answers here at the forum, i'd like to ask you some questions...I'm working with Gambit importing an Autocad file, but there are a lot of problems, as always, when you export from CAD to CFD.

- Do u know which is the best software to work in CAD and then export to CFD? Autocad or Mechanical Desktop??? - Is there any best type of file (the extension i mean, stp, igs...) to work later on Gambit from the CAD softwares??

Thanks in advance, waiting for news!!

I'm using Pro-E, importing .sat to Gambit and export .msh to Fluent and Ansys, so far not facing any problem.

-Hope will hell-

it depends to the geometry you are using. for many cases a .sat (ACIS) format is a good choice. otherwise, IGeS is another good extension to deal with. there is no one general rule for all geometries.
