FE analysis of iges files

FE analysis of iges files

Does anyone know if it possible to do FEA analysis on an imported IGES file??

Im using V5R6 and it doesnt seem to want to mesh using generative structural design - i can use the advanced surfaces to mesh one surface at a time but when i go to perform an analysis it doesnt recognise any loads or fixed points.

Maybe im doing something wrong - if anyone could enlighten me id much appreciate it

RE: FE analysis of iges files


Did you use the external view? You need to have an external view to mesh a surface. I think you can find it in Generative Shape Design, somewhere in 'View'...

Thanks for the advice Excalibur, something so simple - saved me alot of effort - thought i was gonna have to re-model the whole lot!!!!

Cheers Mate
