How to import drawing from Solidworks 15 to ANSYS 16.2?

By Mahros Darsin on 21 Apr 04:36 1 answer 0 comments

We just have upgraded all the programs in my PC; for ANSYS to ver 16.2 and for Solidworks to ver 15. However I failed to import from Solidworks to ANSYS. It looks incompatible.

    I have heard about this issue before. Ansys and SW run on different upgrade schedules.
    Try to save the SW file as iges and import it to Ansys. I know this is not enough if you want to do a parameterized study on the geometry.

    Also, you might again configured the SW plug-in.

    1. Run CAD configuration manager as administrator.

    2. Select the tab CAD selection,

    3. Go to SolidWorks : tools, add-ins, and enable Ansys.
