How to give knitted surfaces thickness [for use in ANSYS Fluent] 

Question asked by Tim Behrman on Feb 6, 2018

Hi folks
I'm making aerodynamic surfaces, see front motorcyle fairing below:


I cannot thicken the knitted surfaces to a thickness below 6mm. When I thicken them to 6mm (or above) and export part into ANSYS (as an IGES file), it is only recognised as a series of surface bodies, and therefore cannot be used to run and CFD. Thickening the surfaces individually then knitting them does not help.

I would appreciate any help offered.

Cheers, Tim.
