Hi Ryan,

I have made 15 short YouTube videos on working with STL files to make them into geometry that is useful for meshing.

If you would like advice on your specific STL file and are able to share it, use an archive program such as WinZip or 7-Zip to compress the file into a .zip archive. Then copy that into a file sharing site such as Google Drive, OneDrive or Jumpshare and put the link to the .zip file in your reply.  Also, say what version of Ansys you are using.
