Re: Solidworks CFX
Yes , why not.

If you can solid works in parasolid text (.x_t). Then you can import geometry with "Import Geometry" .. It should work now.

Better still, get the SolidWorks interface for Workbench.

hi, read this

It doesnt come as a default, need to pay for it. Its pretty useful while performing optimization studies wherein your CAD geometry requires frequent updates. The same interface can be used to import *.SLDPRT files directly into CFXMesh, design Modeller etc.

The interface works directly with a live SolidWorks session, so you would need SW installed and licensed to import the file. If you don't have it, ask your friend to export the file to Parasolids.

Re: Solidworks CFX
Yes! Choose this type of file to import at Workbench: .SLDPRT
