Hello,

I have a problem with meshing, but I suppose it's because of geometry and I don't know how to solve it.
I work on a simulation of the airflow over the wing. I prepared the element in Solidworks and moved it to Ansys. Then I created a surface body from it and added enclosure. Together I got 5 parts in simulation, so I supressed irrelevant bodies.
I moved to meshing and when I finished I got a message from the title: 'The mesh file exporter failed during translation'. Then I unsupressed other bodies, but then I got: 'The mesh file exporter could not resolve cyclic denpendencies in overlapping contact regions.Please try to Repair Overlapping Contact Regions.' I tried deleting contacts, hiding unwanted bodies, but it didn't work.
I guess the perfect solution would be "deleting" redundant geometry, however it's not possible from what I know.

Thank you in andvance for any help.

Sounds like your geometry is not clean or what you want (already contains irrelevant bodies) and things go wrong from there. I have very limited experience with ANSYS Meshing, but I know Solidworks very well. Maybe you can show an image of your model including the model tree?

Thank you AtoHM for your reply.

I solved my problem-I created surface body in SpaceClaim instead of DesignModeler and supressed connections.
