Default Exporting Gambit to Fluent v4
Posts: n/a
I am having problems exporting mesh files created in gambit to fluent v4. Geometry is orientated differently. This is only a problem when solving a problem using deforming mesh model, when subsequent grid files need to be identical. Each subsequent grid file is orientated in a different manner when viewed from within fluent.

If anyone can help I would be obliged !!!

I'm also working with a deforming mesh and went back to geomesh to provide the grid sequences. Also, since Gambit is the front-end for Fluent 5 (& Fidap, etc), question wether it's backward compatible. If you find a way, I'd also be interested in this information. Phil

You got me curious ! Just tried producing, exporting and reading a Gambit file to Fluent 4 and it does work. In Gambit, pick the Fluent 4 solver option and then export - mesh which leaves as a *.grd file.
