Can I use gridgen mesh as a background mesh for snappyhexmesh.
 
Hello, I'm not familiar with snappyhexmesh. I've been using Gridgen for my meshing. I have a 10million mesh which I generated with gridgen for NACA001. I need to create a voxel mesh for NACA0012, Is there anyway that I can export my 3d mesh data in to snappyhexmesh, without creating the mesh using blockmesh

hi
SnappyHexMesh is prity easy to use.
What is the difficulty you are facing.?

Hi,

If you look at those links you will see that many people exported from Gridgen as Fluent and converted via fluent3DMeshToFoam

But if you are a current gridgen user you can get a pointwise license => Pointwise is included at no extra cost with your Gridgen license and follow post

Thanks a lot. I'll try that. Actually I was asked to generate the voxel mesh using Vcad since I'm dealing with large grids so I don't need to use snappy but I will anyway try your method.
