geometry import problem
hello everyone im only a beginner in icem cfd

im meshing a model in icem for my project

what happened yesterday is i imported my solid model(.stp file) gave it a domain and just gave it a coarse mesh in icem and the mesh was complete.

but now i am unable 2 open the original geometry without the domain which i worked with
now when i try to import the geometry it says

C:/ANSYS Inc/v130/icemcfd/win64_amd/dif/iges/igestotin" {} "C:/project/Swift.stp" "Swift.tin"
child killed: SIGABRT
Done file Swift.tin.
Tetin file Swift.tin does not exist

how can i solve the problem because i need to work again with the original model and give it a better mesh

go to the file where you saved your project. double click on the .tin file alone. see if it can be opened...

problem in ansys maybe
The same problem troubled me for some time but I uninstalled the ansys 13.0 changed to ansys 14.5 and the problem disappeared. You can try that too. (I know it is very painful still you should give it a try.)
