CFD Result Files - Convert plot3d(fast) > cgns

    Hello. I have a small problem. I have a CFD run going on our universities cluster. For those runs, I use a fully structured code that uses plot3d formatted files. Rather than have to go in there and look at them, I would like to look at them here at work, where we use CFX.

    In short, is there a way to convert by grid and flow files into an appropriate file that can be read into CFX? Doing a quick google said that CGNS was a somewhat standard, so I figured that would be the easiest conversion rather than to an unformatted proprietary file format.

    p.s. plot3d grid file is:
    Code (Text):

    numBlocks
    (imax,jmax,kmax,i=1,nBlocks)
    DO i=1,nBlocks
      x(:,:,:),y(:,:,:),z(:,:,:)
    END DO
     
    and the flow file is similar
    Code (Text):

    numBlocks
    (imax,jmax,kmax,i=1,nBlocks)
    DO i=1,nBlocks
      time,mach,reynolds,angle_of_attack
      mass(:,:,:),xmomen(:,:,:),ymomen(:,:,:),zmomen(:,:,:),energy(:,:,:)
    END DO
