Export the geometry from Solidworks as a parasolid. You can import Parasolids into both ICEM and DesignModeller.

Hi Marco,

You cannot open the Solidworks file directly in CFX5.5. Not possible. Have to export as a parasolid. ICEM has a Solidworks direct CAD interface, which allows you to export tin files and generate meshes directly in Solidworks. I trialled it about a year ago and frankly it was terrible so I did not purchase a license. Maybe they have improved it since then but certainly when I trialled it, it was a dog. Exporting parasolids from Solidworks is much better.
