Hi Everyone,

I'm new to Pointwise, and I'm having trouble saving .pw files as well as exporting CAE.

I have created a simple 2D, structured mesh. After defining boundary conditions (walls, pressure inlet, and pressure outlet) and a volume condition (fluid), I attempt to save the file by using selecting the domain and clicking File > Save As. The progress bar at the bottom left hand corner seems to finish running after a few seconds, but when I check the file size from the terminal, it shows up as empty with 0 bytes.

I run into the same problem while exporting to Ansys Fluent. The progress bar would finish running, but the exported .cas file would be empty.

I have tried Googling this problem but have not found any relevant posts/issues. I'm using Pointwise 18.0

Thanks for your help!
