Hi Stuart,

Icem replay scripting is a more difficult task than most people realise. I assume you are not creating the geom in ICEM, and are therefore using a geometry converter. The problem with this is that the converter must name every single point, curve and surface either by assigning names (pnt.01 etc), or by reading the names from the geometry file. Because most CAD file formats don't explicitly require a name for each geometry entity, the names of points curves and surfaces will be inconsistent when importing different geometry (especially if there is a large topology change). Try and see if your CAD package allows you to name all entities, otherwise you might have to resort to using ICEM for geometry creation as well.
