pro/engineer -> turbogrid import file
Hi, I am using CFX-turbogrid and would like to import the geometry from the software Pro/Engineer . Does someone know how to do ? thanks a lot for your answers. YIM
Re: pro/engineer -> turbogrid import file
this quesion is good,i would like to know what is an object that you will import ?it is blade geometry yes or no. Regards
Re: pro/engineer -> turbogrid import file
geometry is a axial impellar in cylinder...and rotating ...very simple design how can i import igs file...thanks
regarding importing catia blade to turbogrid
I have a blade which i made in catia. Please tell me the procedure to import it to turbogrid. Its a bit urgent.
At this point, TurboGrid can't import geometry generated by pro-e or other CAD packages directly. What TurboGrid needs are .curve files of hub, blade profile, and shroud. Those files can be generated by CFX-BladeGen. You have to get familiar with file format to import your geometry into TurboGrid.
you can not import geometry in blade gen or turbo grid. it's batter you use fluid domain concept with boundary conditions.
Blade gen generates .Curve file. and that is input to turbo grid
how to import catia suface model in turbogrid.
no not possible....
Batter as i advise go through fluid domain concept
The method to import blade surface to TurboGrid from foreign CAD application
To import blade surface geometry to TurboGrid from CAD, you need some add-on modules from ANSYS. You need BladeModeler and CAD Interface for the CAD system in use. Both Pro/E and Catia are supported. Other main stream CAD such as SolidWork, SolidEdge, AutoDesk Inventor are also supported. With the modules metioned above, you can export your blade surface directly to ANSYS Workbench and consequetly TurboGrid. The procedure is list roughly as below. However, please make sure you are using ANSYS 12.0 or later.
1. After install CAD interface and the post-installation configuring,
you can find a new item named ANSYS 12.0 or 12.1 on the tool bar.
Open the menu for this item and choose the respective item to export
your geometry to ANSYS Workbench.
2. You can find a geometry object(DM) is created in WB flow chart space.
3. Supposed you have installed BladeModeler and configure the license
preference for geometry to "BladeModeler", you can find items for
4. You should first define a "flow path" object giving hub, shroud, inlet,
and outlet curves. All the curves are defined by "Sketch" objects. One
sketch should be for one curve. These sketches must be defined on X-
Z plane. In the detail menu of flow path object, you can locate the
stream line location in the form of radial percentage where you hope
to extract surface profiles. You can put more stream lines over root
fillet or somewhere change rapidly.
5. Then define an "Export Points" object. Choose the flow path defined
before and surfaces you hope to export to TurboGrid.
6 After finish all the above five steps and make sure every objects are
generated successfully, close DM and move back to WB flow scheme
7. Pull out the TurboGrid object and make it connected to DM object we
work around before. You can find the imported blade surface after
8. Blade surface in TurboGrid will be changed automatically once you
change your surface with the CAD system.
With former version ANSYS such as V11, you shoud first export your CAD
entity as IGES file, import it with BladeGen Data Import Wizzard, then export its .curve files.
I'm having difficulties in exporting my geometry (radial turbine blade) in turbogrid. I have a STEP file that I can open in Design Modeler. Now, if I have understood well, I need to create sketches in order to define a flow path. As suggested, these sketches should be drawn in X-Z plane. This is not very clear to me. For instance, the hub sketch would be simply the camber line of the hub in the meridional view? In this case how does turbogrid understand the variation of thickenss from hub to tip? I would say that the hub sketch should be a closed curve in drrawn in 3D and not only in X-Z plane. Is that right? I would appreciate any clarification. Many thanks.
how to define Sketch and FlowPath?
I've imported the ANSYS Example named: " Axial Fan " located in the installation directory.
Any other one who can help or advice would be appreciated.
