ANSYS Workbench - Imported geometry - SOLID186 - Internal forces and moment

ANSYS Workbench - Imported geometry - SOLID186 - Internal forces and moment

(OP)
Is it possible to import geometry from 3D modeling software as SolidWorks, make analysis in ANSYS Workbench, but get result similar to results that one can get by using ANSYS Mechanical APDL' Element table. (Fx,Fy,Fz,Mx,My,Mx).

When I look at ANSYS Mechanical APDL Element Reference, SOLID186 (that is used on imported elements (SOLID186 Homogeneous Structural Solid Output Data) does not support these result as I understand it.

But how to get this result in ANSYS from imported geometry. Is it possible.

Thank You.

SOLID186 does not have rotational DOF thus no moment outputs. FSUM, RSYS and SPOINT should get you what you need.


Best regards,
