Export to CAD formats


ExportGeo-CAD exports structures from GeoDict formats to generic surface representation formats or generic CAD formats, enabling the integration of GeoDict-modelled structures into pre-established workflows.

Profit from materials modelled with GeoDict outside the GeoDict software package.

Examples of ExportGeo-CAD applications

  • 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing 
  • Visualization using an external render software. 
  • Integration into a simulation workflow.

Examples of Applications

ExportGeo-Fluent Features

ExportGeo-Fluent converts voxelized data to formats for flow and heat computations with Fluent™. The *.jou and *.inp files are saved as ASCII files so that, if changes are required, they can be easily opened and edited with a text editor.

Based on the voxel structure, the GeoDict software also generates an unstructured volume mesh (.msh file), as needed for Fluent™. These steps are required:

  • Import 3D-image data (µCT, FIG-SEM..) or create a 3D-material model with the needed material characteristics using one of the GeoDict modules for digital material design.
  • Define the solver settings needed in Fluent™, and save to *.jou file with ExportGeo-Fluent.
  • Execute *.jou in Fluent™.
