Hi,

Can someone tell me whether MED format is the same as Medit format? If not, is it possible to convert between the two or any converter exists? Thanks!

Hi,

unfortunately MED and Medit format have just nothing in common... sorry. But what would you like to do? Transfer a MESH or results? From which software to MEDIT ? From MEDIT to which software?

If you can give me more details, I could give you some advices about possible file formats...

PS: For more details about file formats and inter operability we have started a discussion here :

Hi,

Thanks for the reply!

I am using elmer to do a thermal analysis. The CAD geometry is quite complex. I would like to use Salome to import the CAD file then mesh it. This will be in MED format.

According to the Elmer website, it can import Medit format. So, I am hoping to convert the MED mesh so that Elmer can read it. Elmer can also read Abaqus/Fidap/I-DEAS unv formats, so, I will be happy to convert MED to these three formats instead because I have zero experience in Medit format.

Best,

Dear all,

I have a 3D meshed file ( containing both triangular and Tetrahedral meshes) which I need to convert to any of "igs" "dxf" "ascii" or similar formats. Eventually I need to feed this into Abaqus software for analysis.

Any help/advise/suggestion on how this can be done will be highly appreciated.

Cheers,
Vincent

To all the people here, Gmsh can handle MED, Medit and Abaqus meshes, but only meshes, it will not import or export boundary conditions nor results. Gmsh can also handle IGES and STEP files natively and includes a DXF converter in its source tarball (it can be used independently from Gmsh).
