ANSYS ACP (Pre) Static Structural Geometry Distortion

      Hi there,

      I'm working with ANSYS ACP for the first time and am trying to do a simple static structural analysis.

      The geometry I am using is a cube with 1m long sides. I made this in the CAD software Solid Edge as a surface body.

      The issue I am having is that after the 'Setup' in ACP (Pre), the geometry gets distorted at the edges, see attached screenshot of the mesh as viewed in the Static Structural Module.

      Note that when viewing the mesh in the ACP (Pre) Module, there is no distortion of geometry, this only occurs after the 'Setup' in ACP (Pre). In the screen shot you can see a blue outline of the geometry before it is distorted.

      This effect is reduced when the number of layers of composite is reduced, or the geometry is enlarged.

      Has anyone come across this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Many thanks,

      Kieran 😊
