The capability of CFturbo2ICEM to add or remove components makes the tool very flexible. Single component projects, multiple components projects or multiple different projects with one or more components can be processed if desired.

The loaded components are not forced to belong to the same project, because all components are processed separately. For example, for parametric optimization projects, all parameterized geometries can be loaded and meshed sequentially using the Automatic run mode.

To add components to the session successfully, two files are essential for each component: *.tinXML and *.stp. These files are exported from CFturbo and have to be located into the same directory. The file *.tinXML is a special file with important information about the component designed in CFturbo. This file contains the information saved in the Export ICEM-CFD panel in CFturbo like mesh parameters, the component name or the geometry *.stp file. Please do not remove the *.stp file or change its name or location. If you do that, CFturbo2ICEM will not find the file during the component load process. An error message will be displayed in the info window. This error will generally occur if the *.stp file is missing.
