FLUENT allows you to export polyhedral data to FIELDVIEW. Note that while FIELDVIEW supports post-processing of meshes with polyhedral cells, the polyhedra will be decomposed into tetrahedral cells. This is a limitation of FIELDVIEW.

The TUI provides separate options to write the grid and data files. Grids that change with time (sliding mesh, moving deforming mesh, or dynamic adapted mesh) can be written at each time step by defining the command to write the file in the Execute Commands panel.

For the grids that do not change with time, the grid file needs to be written only once. You can avoid the repeated writing of the grid files by using the TUI command for writing only the data file.

For more information about exporting data at specified intervals during the calculation, see Section  4.12.18.
