Workbench v15 configure cad


I have a non-student version of workbench 15 and am trying to import CAD from solidworks. I’ve tried to configure the CAD in CAD management it fails. Is there a work around?

I see spaceclaim mentioned a lot but I don’t have that option.

thanks for your help.

    It only works if you have the ANSYS license for SolidWorks CAD interface. It is a purchased option and doesn't come standard.

    The workaround is to do a File Save As Parasolid from SolidWorks.

    Open Workench and in a Geometry cell, start DesignModeler (assuming you have that license).

    In DesignModeler, use File, Import External Geometry File (or something like that) and choose the Parasolid file.
