Hi Nicholas, as the free student version does not support any CAD connections, I am assuming you are using a commercial version. Have you bought it from us or our Channel partners such as RAND? If you have bought it from Ansys directly, you should be able to open a new SR with us directly at Customer Support and Help Desk: Submit a Request | Ansys if it is from RAND, you can try their site Submit Support Case | Rand SIM . Please let me know if any of these two is possible.

In general, depending on version of Mechanical a few CAD versions are supported, can you please check if you are using the supported CAD version for Windows ( or Linux (

You can also check it here:

Also, please check if your CAD interface is installed while doing the installation and also if it is configured using Product & CAD Configuration Manager (

Please let us know!
