ICEPAK – Mesh recycling of mesh regions

      Hello,nI am wondering if there is a way to reuse mesh regions from one ICEPAK solution to another? nIn my particular case, I am trying to analyze the thermal management of a PCB. I would like to reduce the efforts of meshing the PCB (with all the traces, vias planes etc.) Therefore, I assigned a meshing region around it and would like to reuse the mesh generated in that region in other designs.nI tried to assign a Mesh operation, which allows to include a .msh file. However, I am unable to find/generate the .msh file from previous simulations.nAny idea how to do this? nThanks!n

      By default, mesh is created for all objects in the model each time it is generated. You can reuse mesh for specific objects or shapes if a mesh has been generated for them previously in a different project. The supported mesh file types are the Icepak grid_output file or a Fluent .msh file.nPlease refer to the section in the user guide (linked below)nhttps://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v202/en/ice_ug/ice_ug_sec_reusing_mesh.htmln
