Dear All,

I made a geometry by SolidWorks(IGES fromat) and imported it into Ansys Workbench. I am trying to open it by Workbench to change some of its boundaries; however, Workbench does not open it. Workbench opens without any geometry.

Does anybody know what the problem is?

Kind regards,
AshtonJ

What I did; opened a "Transient Structural" then imported the geometry into "Geometry" part and then right clicked on it and chose the "Edit".

Is there anything more I need to do?
Thank you

Once Design Modeler is opened, If you look mon the tree where it says "XY plane" etc. There should be you geom etry that says Attach or something like that. click on it and hit generate. Then it will show your model.
