Importing Projects from Detect3D

Both in:Flux and Detect3D can share project information with each other.


If you already have a .d3d project file saved you may select the file when importing a 3D CAD geometry to in:Flux. Doing this will import only the CAD model though, follow the steps below for the other information which can be shared.


  1. From the File menu, click the Import from in:Flux CFD... option.


  2. The below window will appear allowing you to select which features you would like to import:

    1. Load Geometry which will perform the same function as described above

    2. Load Point Gas Detectors from Detect3D as Monitor Points in in:Flux

    3. Load Open-Path GAs Detectors from Detect3D as Monitor Lines in in:Flux

    4. Load Zones from Detect3D as Monitor Regions in in:Flux



After clicking the import button the chosen items will be imported into the in:Flux project. Monitors imported in this way will need to be updated with the project if simulations have already been completed.
