How to export designs from nTop for CFD Analysis in Siemens StarCCM+?

This video demonstrates a workflow to export surface meshes of fluid domain geometry from nTop for CFD analysis in Star-CCM+. The workflow involves the generation of meshes from surfaces that represent boundary conditions in nTop and then combining these meshed surfaces in Star-CCM+ for volume meshing and analysis. 

Prior to watching the video, we recommended the following courses on nTop Learn to understand the process of designing and meshing complex geometry in nTop : 

  1. Multicourse: Heat Exchanger Design
  2. 102: Guide to Meshing
  3. Surface Meshing Best Practices
