STAR-CD export supports all cell types that can be created in Pointwise.

Blocks with common VCs are automatically merged in the CAE file with the VC used as the zone name. To have separate blocks written out with assigned VCs, set a different VC to each block to avoid automatic merge. Alternatively, setting block VCs to Unspecified will cause the blocks to be exported separately under their block names.

Wherever Pointwise detects a singularity in a structured grid, it will convert the cell from a hex (quad) to a wedge (triangle) when exporting it to STAR-CD.

Only the ASCII file format and Single precision are supported for export.
