I want to show you how to import Cad file such as Catpart/sldpart,... in Ansys workbench ..
when you install ansys you should check this options , but if you forgot or ....
follow this step.
My Ansys version is 14.5 and it work in all version upper 12
Start -> all programs -> ANSYS 14.5 -> Utilities -> CAD Configuration Manager 14.5
( Run with run as administrator )
step 2 :
In tab ---> 1) cad section tick workbench and ansys gemoetry interface..
2) in Cad products tick Program that you need to know cad file for ansys. such as : Catia v5 , solidworks ...
3) click to next
when you click on next you went to cad configuration :
1) click on configure selected cad interfaces
now you see front of you proga that choice ...." Configure Success "
click on exit and Enjoy this :D
What if it shows a ''configure failed''. Can you please help me with this problem.
If this way its wrong for u , u can reinstall Ansys and check Catia version 5 or any software of cad during installation of Ansys , you should attention that run Cad configuration as a administrator ( Run as a administrattor ).
Expectation is the above answer...but in reality, happens like which Hiren patel's comment
CatiaV5 WorkBench Reader ..... Configure Success
SW Workbench PlugIn ..... Configure Failed -- Registration Error
what should I do for SW, even its registered ?
Dear i cant work solidwork , maybe your solid program was not install .
generally solid works is working in Worckbench and sometimes not to seeting option for that , check if dont transfer solid work model then rechecked your solid installation
If i press CAD Selection,Ansys Products so Workbench and Ansys geometry interface doesn't seem. I just see Autocad , Catia V4-5-6 , Pro Engineer,Inventor,JT, NT ...but there is not Ansys Products. What can i do?
Thank you from now...
Hi dear ,
