IGES import to TurboGrid
 
Hi guys.

Is there any way to import blade geometry that is in IGES format (in fact i got it in SolidWorks) into TurboGrid?

You should export from Solidworks in parasolid format. It is a much better format for ANSYS and SW.

yeah, use design modeler it will create the geometry for blade modeler and as well as for turbogrid with some clicks . Need to use workbench

Thanks. But I cant find in help how to get blade from design modeler to turbogrid. When i connect them in workbench and try to update geometry i got error message. What have i done wrong?

Whoever had setup your licensing didnt make sure geometry modeler was disabled (a requirement for the ANSYS turbosystem). I think there is a setting in the workbench for preferences that lets you disable the geometry one (set from 1 to 0) and make blade editor default, it is in the ansys turbosystem pdf help file.

Also when you get that working there is going to be alot more work to do to get into a turbogrid format from DM. Setup flow paths, export points, flow paths, etc. You might want to try to go through BladeGen if you have it on a windows machine.
