I got the following question by private mail:

"I have an other question about bifmesh code in pyFormex.
How can I transfer the generated mesh file to ANSYS Fluent?
And Is there any document or tutorial for bifmesh code?
Thank you very much!"

First about the documentation: there is (too) little at the moment, but the bifmesh menu has a first item 'Run through example' which will guide you through all steps and create an example mesh.

For the export, I attached a simple example script as a file.
It takes the generated volume and surface meshes, and exports them in Abaqus .inp format.

For most other (text) formats it should not be too difficult to
make the required changes. You basically have to provide the propert writeNodes and writeElems functions. Look at the ones in in pyformex/plugins to guide you. The contains other versions to export to Gambit (from where you can create the Fluent mesh).

And maybe some other user can add some other way?
