The interface writes the node coordinates, the element connectivities and the node groups in the POLY3D format. The following POLY3D packets compose the file created with this interface:
The translator writes the POLY3D input file using an unstructured domain file. To create the POLY3D input file, select the translator "POLY3D" in the "Output" menu from the ICEM CFD/CAE Manager. After clicking "Write output" you can specify options for the POLY3D interface:
The interface generates the POLY3D file located in the Transfer Shell. You may open a shell window in this directory by selecting the menu items "Utility" and "Transfer Shell".
The node groups are directly created using the family information as defined in the DDN-Mesher Interface.
