Hi everybody,
I am trying to fill an empty volume inside a pump with the volume of the fluid oil. I have imported the geometries of the pump parts in ICEM and with them I have built up the surfaces bounding the oil. After building up the topology and checking the geometry, I have exported to IGES. Then I tried to import it in Design Modeler. But not all the surfaces are visible and the solid volume does not exist.
Does somebody have any advices in order to correctly export / import IGES file from ICEM to Design Modeler?
Thanks everybody
Regards
Giorgio

A friend of mine gave me this suggestion: to build up a simple volume contained by the structural geometry of the pump body and containing the volume of the fluid inside.
Then with Design Modeler -> Create -> Boolean -> Operation: Subtract, I created the Solid of the fluid inside the structural geometry.
For building up this simple volume, I used ICEM; then I exported it with Parasolid file type.
For now I have fixed this problem. But if somebody has other suggestions, they will be appreciated!
Regards
Giorgio
