error opening file
 
Hello everyone,

When I setup a simulation to model the filling process of casting, it reports such error:

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }
Preprocessor Messages:
** error opening file **
unit= 40
file= complete.dat
status= old
parameters= 1 0 0 0
*****
level 1 error in subroutine rdstl:
i/o error while opening stl data file complete with feeds(2).stl
*****
***** fatal error *****
I created a stl copy of a CAD file generated by CATIA, which is named "complete with feeds(2).stl". Flow-3D gave this error when it's preprocessing the input file. I usually import stl CAD file into FLOW-3D, it works very well previously. But I have no idea about this error this time.


Does someone encounter this problem as well?


Thanks a lot!

Dear Yang Yue.

Try to remove spaces. For example complete_with_feeds(2).stl

Regards.
