Default Importing a model from CATIA into ANSYS

Hello everybody,

I am trying to import a model of a wind tunnel consisting of several sections saved as several parts (including a honeycomb). When I import the honeycomb section alone, I obtain separate bodies for each hexagonal structure in DesignModeler. However, when importing the entire tunnel, I get one body in DesignModeler. I came across the following "If ANSYS detects that the model contains multiple volumes which are connected together, the program turns volume creation off and the you must create the multiple volumes." I have tried looking for this option but could not solve my problem. Anybody have any idea about this issue of the "volume creation" option?

Thanks for any help!
