Mesh for KIVA using GRIDGEN

Can a mesh generated using GRIDGEN be converted into itape17 to be used in KIVA-3V or is k3prep the only grid generator for KIVA-3V?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, SS

Hello Srivastava. Yes, Gridgen can be used to generate meshes for KIVA. PLOT3D files were exported from Gridgen and a translator called K3PREP was used to convert them to KIVA files. Hope this helps.
