Hi. I am using star-ccm+ 7.04 and hypermesh v11.0. I am doing surface meshing in hypermesh and want to export it into star ccm+ and then to es-ice.

my elements in hypermesh are mixed and when i export it as nastran file and open in STAR CCM+ and click 'mesh on' it is only trias. Am I missing something here? I want to retain mixed elements and not trias. Thank you.
