Hi

Anyone knows how to convert .msh file into ASCII format file

I tried to run command: fluent3DMeshToFoam Elbowpipe.msh

I got following errors:

Hi itsme,

I'm not sure for a "msh" file, but this kind of error message generaly comes from a case file (*.cas) saved in binary format instead of ASCII format.

Have a look in that direction.

Hi itsme,

You can save msh as ascii by opening fluent as meshing mode.
