bfc 2 povray
I would like to convert a bfc-mesh A created by fluent into a mesh B . The format of the mesh B should be similar to the one ,i would use in povray to render the object depicted by A . That is, find triangles,that make up the surface of the object,that has been rendered into mesh A . UNfortunately,i donīt have access to a copy of the fluent software. Is there a way to to do this conversion by hand ?

Mesh A looks like

Re: bfc 2 povray
I have a fortran program, which converts a fluent grid file into a starcd grid. If you know, how your mesh B should look like you can easily modify this code. Just tell me if you are interested in this.

Re: bfc 2 povray
I have a vast collection of utilities that do conversion and have converted fluent meshes to STAR-CD meshes and STAR-CD meshed to povray and lately .rib format for rendering in BMRT. If you want to contact me I could definitely help
