Hi there,

I have created a mesh on pointwise and when trying to export as a CAE, it only gives the option to export as a .ccm file, however this isn't a compatible file format to import within star ccm and so it cannot load up.

Has anyone had similar issues or know how else to export from pointwise?

Many thanks

Star-ccm can import .ccm files. Make sure you are importing the volume mesh and not using the import CAE model option in Star-CCM.


Otherwise, you can even export it in pointwise in Fluent format and star can read it, as well as several other formats.
