I would like to import my porous material image in CFD software such as fluent for flow simulation studies. Can anybody please provide me an idea, how to do that ? Because these softwares accept geometries only such as autocad or something not an image file. My sample image is attached here for reference.
Inkscape can export autocad files and import *.svg files.
So a possible workflow would be:
- Create ROI’s from your segmented images (e.g. with the particle analysis)
- Export the ROI set to a *.svg file.
- Import the *.svg and then export the file as *.dxf in Inkscape
I found this unfinished example to do this with a macro:
And this plugin seems to be capable to export ROI’s to *.svg:
@Bio7 thank you very much your answer. I have done the steps as you explained above, but how to import .dxf file in fluent ? workbench doesn’t seem to import .dxf file
