I am trying to export a Fluent mesh from Pointwise. It is 2D, so no blocks, just domains. When I read it into Fluent, it does not read in properly due to the error message in the title. Has anybody encountered this error? I can export as CGNS and other formats and the mesh reads in fine. I want to read in as Fluent format (.cas) because all the boundary conditions are defined already in Pointwise and CGNS, etc. does not preserve that. Also, I do not want to manually seperate (which I have yet to get to work properly) and define all of the faces (2D lines in this case).

So it appears Pointwise ignores/doesnt make visible the connectors (lines) in between domains in the exported fluent file, and fluent needs to see these connectors. In pointwise, you have to manually make connectors selectable (a checkbox when you pull up the window to set boundary conditions) and put them in an (unspecified) boundary condition group.

I had encountered such an error message ,when i tried to read a cas file into fluent, but not for the reason as your description. the reason may be that the cas file had been saved after unsuccessfully reviewing dynamic mesh.
