Can anyone give me any tips on importing plate models into autodesk mechanical simulation 2012. I have been drawing models in autocad 3d because simulation will not accept inventor assemblies. I have had some luck when converting to .sat files, but none with .iges or .step. I usually get a lot of meshing errors or end up with hundreds of parts when my cad drawing only has a dozen parts. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Is anyone able to convert inventor assemblies into part files? Thanks.
