Catia 5 to Ansys 6 Model transfer...

Catia 5 to Ansys 6 Model transfer...

Hey everyone...

I cannot seem to transfer my models from Catia V5R7 to Ansys 6.0.I've tried creating .igs file, .model files. .stl files (Which ansys does not support). step files...with Zero success...Anyone else have this problem and has anyone found a solution.

The modeling package is so poor in Ansys that it will kill me to have to re-creat my models in Ansys!!

Any help would be appreciated...Thanks in Advance!!

Have you tried parasolid files? ANSYS works best (in my opinion) with *.x_t export files.

MSC.Software has a V5 to ANSYS Gateway product which will allow you to take Mesh properties and boundry conditions to ANSYS. Unfortunately it does not support V5R7.

It is available for V5R8sp2 and above. It does require you to have a seat of GPS as well.
