ANSYS Polyman allows you to import mesh files created for Polyflow (
.poly) or Fluent (
.msh) using the File/Import/Polyflow mesh menu item:
File → Import → Polyflow mesh
In the resulting Choose a file panel, select
.poly file and click (or double-click the
file name). You will then be prompted to specify the simulation or
mesh repository where you want to save this file. The file name will
be noted in the Mesh file leaf in the relevant
branch of the Simulation(s) section of the project
The use of the File/Import/Polyflow mesh menu item allows you to read files directly (see also Reading Files Directly), as opposed to a process whereby
the mesh file is converted (see Importing a
.poly File and Converting Mesh Files Created by Other Programs).
Note: Directly loading an ICEM or Fluent mesh file saves time by not converting the file to native Polyflow .msh format. It also fixes some of the problems associated with the conversion tool. Sometimes the conversion can lead to small unwanted geometry changes. These geometry changes do not occur with direct loading. Use care when importing data files, as data files created on converted meshes may not be compatible with directly loaded meshes.
