How to import CAD into Fluent (Design Modeler)?
 
Hi, I'm using the Design modeler of the Fluent flow dynamics software, Academic (non-commercial) licesnce, and I need to import my drawing into it to move to the next step and generate the mesh. I've tried to import many files such as (dwg, stl, igs, step) for AutoCAD, and also tried (par, asm) for SolidEdge. However all of them gave me the same error which is Attach Failed. Anybody could Help me with this?!

Hi there
in Autocad export your 3D geometry in .sat format
note that it has to be something 3d
