I want to develop a application that can convert the dxf file to airpak3.0 model file using C++.And I find that airpak3.0 model file is a TEXT file,which is organized as a certain format.But I can not understand it.Is there anyone that is familiar with it,or is there any information about it?

Below is a sample for Airpak3.0 model file

@yongqingzhao this might be difficult since Airpak has been defunct for about five years. Have you considered OpenFOAM as an alternative? There is a big user community for that tool.

<necromancer answering="" old="" unanswered="" posts="">

So there is a document here, where Chapter 3 describes the files used by AirPak. The most interesting note, however, is in Section 4.3 where they note that dxf can be imported directly.
