Dear all,

I have been working on a design for several weeks already, but cannot import it to star-cd. The format is iges, and was created under star-design. I also have a version done under Solid Work which gives the same problem: The error message is the following: "# 320: error in IGES conversion. This error may not be fatal. Check the outuput and the model. " However, the error is fatal...

Thanks to all,

Laure.P

Thanks Nirmal for your help. However, it still doesn't work: I created the part under Star-design, saved it as a file.iges , then opened StarSurf to import it. I then meshed the surface, and saved the model both as a "prostar file" or a "iges " file. When I try to open this with Star, for the iges file, I still have the same error message, and for the grid import (using the .cel and .vrt folder), nothing happens... Hope someone has a solution,

Laure

Well, the problem seems actually to be a problem in launching pro am. I saw that problem on internet, but it has apparently not been solved. Apparently a difficulty from sar am to write in the temp file (according to what was said, but personnaly, I don't have any clue). So, thanks again, Nirmal, but the problem is now more a Star am launch problem. Thanks to you, Regards, Laure

I had a very similar problem and found that everything has to be in the same directory including the .iges file.

Everything needs to be in one directory and that directory needs to be set as your working directory. As for getting the model into pro-am, you can do this:

If you're in star-design, create a surface mesh, then save the model. - In your working directory you will now have a subdirectory that has the same name of the model. In that directory, there will be a .ezs file. This is a pro-surf restart file. Open pro-surf, then open this file. You should see your meshed surface. - in the pro-surf NavCenter, go to Output (last folder I believe). Output your surface to a database (.dbs) file. The file name defaults to star.dbs and the database that it's stored in is 2. - open pro-am with a casename that matches the database file name from above (i.e.). - in pro-am: dbase get 2 cset all cplo

you should see the surface.

The other way is to just import the iges file into pro-surf, generate the grid and then export as outlined above.

Thanks a lot to all of you, especially Jamie for the very clear and detailed explaination. However, I am efraid that my problems start before: I can't even lauch pro-am. I can launch all the others, but for this one, I have the following message: Coudn't read file D:\programmes\CD adapco\STARCD\PROSTAR\3.22\windows-x86\/../data/tcl/init.tcl" : Object is too large for operation on lines 0 in init.tcl I hope, there is something to do...? Thanks again for your help, Laure

Call your local support office and request a copy of v3.26 for Windows. The problem you are experiencing occurred with v3.22.
