Default ICEM mesh file in correct format for OpenFOAM

SamEngD is on a distinguished road

I have been trying for a couple of days now to get a mesh file from ICEM to run in OpenFOAM. I have created an unstructured mesh that runs perfectly in Fluent, but need to import the mesh into OpenFOAM so I can run the problem as a discrete method (dsmcFOAM).

Would anyone know how I can get the mesh in the correct ascii file format as it shows as a binary file when I open it in OpenFOAM and cant export it from fluent in that format like I could easily do if the mesh was made in the workbench meshing tool.
