gotang is on a distinguished road
I am trying to export pathlines from a Fluent simulation to a CAD format so that they can be used as reference geometry for design. Obviously, with over 250 separate pathlines, I need to be able to read them all in as a batch, rather than generating a separate file for each curve and importing them one at a time. I have tried exporting the pathlines out to .ibl format, but have been unable to read it in (Solidworks should be able to using the Scanto3D add in, but it just crashes). Does anyone have any ideas how I can do this? I am primarily using Autodesk Inventor, but also have access to SolidWorks.
