  • Using Mimics and FluentCategory: Mimics ModulesCreated: 18 Sep 2014Description: To facilitate data exchange with Fluent, it is best to use the fluent mesh format. The .msh file contains the triangle data from the STL file along with surface definitions. The notion of surface definitions is important and therefore the msh file contains more information than the STL file. Especially for fluid flow simulation applications, surfaces are necessary to define inlet and outlet of the ...
