Hello,
In design modeler is possible to convert line to solid body, is there a possibility to do so in Spaceclaim?

I would like to draw a spline in a single volume to have a sizing control over the line.
The alternative is to split the volume and i don't like it so much.

Thanks

Hi Andrea,

Not sure about what you want to achieve... What do you mean by "In design modeler is possible to convert line to solid body" ?

If you're looking for beam elements with Spaceclaim, you can simply add a profile to your line/spline under > Prepare > Profile > Add profile.

Have fun

Thanks Gweher for your reply. In ICEM i can import line body just to have small elements in that precise line.
I'm simulating jet flow of a plume in a sea current. I ran a coarse mesh just to undestand the trajectory of the plume in the sea; i draw it as a line in spaceclaim and now i would like to import the geo in ansys meshing, though i can import just solid and surfaces.
In ICEM i can import line and refine just that line, though time for tetra mesh construction is quit large and, personally, i prefer tetra mesh made with ansys meshing.

Hi Andrea,

Well in your case if you want to mesh everything with ANSYS meshing you need to change the import resolution of the system.

In workbench go under Tool > Properties. Then select the geometry cell and on the right you'll have a panel. Go to Advanced Geometry Option > Mixed import resolution > Select the appropriate.

This should do the trick.

Have fun

Has anybody found a way to draw line in spaceclaim and made them result in line bodies?

This is allowed in design modeler.

I would like to do that in order to definy a body of influence towards a direction (the direction of the line) in the mesh.
