STAR-CD v4 export supports all cell types that can be created in Fidelity Pointwise. Unlike the earlier versions, STAR-CD v4 supports polyhedral cells which results in a format change in the boundary definitions.


Caution: The presence of pole connectors and pole domains in structured blocks can result in degenerate hexahedral cells when exporting to an unstructured CAE format. Please refer to the Collapsed Cell Types section of this User Manual for more information on which structured topologies result in unsupported cell types.
