Hello, I have a problem importing a solidworks file to gambit. In solidworks I have an airfoil, I want to introduce it in gambit. If I save the file in:

1) IGES--> Gambit only can read if I choose in gambit: translator: native.

I can see the airfoil with a lot of mistakes

2) ACIS--> I have in gambit:

Imported: 0 acis body, 0 face, 0 edge, 0 vertex

3) STEP

Warning (0) Deletefile (C:\................)
Transaltion Failed


What can I do?

Thank you everyone and sorry for my english.

I've had good luck bringing it in as a parasolid.

Thank you Chris D for your fast answer. I canīt save it like parasolid, solidworks show this mistake:

"You canīt save the file because the pieceīs geometry isnīt valid for this mode of saving"

How do you do it?
If you doesnīt matter, can you send me the file in parasolid?

Thank you.
