I have problem with exporting IGES model to ANSYS. I am creating a model in SW and exporting it as IGES. However, all solid wolums are missed when I imported it into ANSYS. What do you guys recommend?
Try importing to ANSYS a STEP or Parasolid, ANSYS might read these other files better than IGES.
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Kong.
I used to export SolidWorks file into Parasolid to be used in ANSYS.

Thank you for your help! I am not familiar with Solidworks, and I was given a ridiculously big solid works file to model in FLUENT and importing the Solidworks file directly to ANSYS gave me all kinds of errors. Saving the file as a Parasolid fixed everything!!!!
Check out part 2.3 of this pdf file. It says ANSYS will accept
Thanks for your help!
I tried to import STEP and Parasolid files as well and ANSYS showed it required a license. Does it require special ANSYS license to import STEP and Parasolid?
It does if you need to open the program and use any of it's tools.
