Hi all,

I am a beginner with ansys 14.5 and would like to import some models from Pro Engineer. And I have these questions:

1.- The model consists of many body that are imported as freezed bodies. They are represented as ice cubes. How does affect this the model in Mechanical?

2.- I am experiencing problems with some of this imported bodies. Is there a way to deactivate (or erase them) from Design Modeler without having to create models without this bodies in ProEngineer?

3.- Error when I generate WITH THE ENCLOSURE: Conversion of body to DesignModeler format failed. How could I know why and what should I do?


Thanks in advance.

I found that there're very small overlaped areas between the parts. And when I import only one part there's no errors creating the enclusure.

Are there options in Ansys (Design Modeler) to repair these problems and remove these overlaped areas from the geometry?


Thank you

At the end I found the solution of this problems by exporting from ProE with STEP format. Then I imported with SpaceClaim and prepared the structure and used the Prepare> Ansys button to export. And everything worked fine.
