URGENT!!! "Import from GAMBIT to ANSYS-12.1 (Design Modeler/Geometry)"
Hi Everyone,

I have very urgent question. I have 3D models that I created in GAMBIT 2.4 version as .dbs file.

My question is: how can I import these 3D GAMBIT models (.dbs) to ANSYS-12.1 (Design Modeler/Geometry) to be able to do some changes in the model geometries (adding some parts, deleteting some parts...etc) before start calculations in FLUENT? I tried to export .dbs file as .IGES, .STEP, .ACIS, .PARASOLID in GAMBIT. However, converting the files into different file types did not work to be able open in ANSYS-12.1 (design modeler)?

Thus, could you give me some advice in order to use my GAMBIT (.dbs) files in new ANSYS-12.1?

you should be able to import into Design modeler any of the file formats that you listed.
In DM, go to: File menu - import ext geom file press enter
Remember to pick the corresponding format you want under "files of type" drop down list.
