ANSYS ICEM CFD – Export/Import Mesh to CFX & FLUENT

When you export from the Meshing application to ANSYS ICEM CFD format, an ANSYS ICEM CFD project file with the extension .prj, along with a geometry file (*.tin) and/or mesh file (*.uns) are written. The files that are created are the same as those that are created if you begin in ANSYS ICEM CFD and use its Workbench Readers option to import a file from the Meshing application.

Anytime you plan to export from the Meshing application to ANSYS ICEM CFD format, it is best practice to define the desired part and body names for your model in the DesignModeler application prior to meshing the model in the Meshing application. This is recommended because the ANSYS ICEM CFD part names will be derived from the part and body names that are defined for the model when you initially open the model in the Meshing application; the export process will ignore any renaming or Named Selections created in the Meshing application.
