Yes , why not.

If you can solid works in parasolid text (.x_t). Then you can import geometry with "Import Geometry" .. It should work now.

Better still, get the SolidWorks interface for Workbench.

hi, read this http://www.ansys.com/Products/icemcf...solidworks.htm

It doesnt come as a default, need to pay for it. Its pretty useful while performing optimization studies wherein your CAD geometry requires frequent updates. The same interface can be used to import *.SLDPRT files directly into CFXMesh, design Modeller etc.

Hi MAB,

The interface works directly with a live SolidWorks session, so you would need SW installed and licensed to import the file. If you don't have it, ask your friend to export the file to Parasolids.

Yes! Choose this type of file to import at Workbench: .SLDPRT
