Ansys Parametric Values

      I am using Solidworks 2016 SP3 and Anys 16.0. I designed a part with parametric values in Solidworks. After I continued Tool..Anys 16.0..Ansys Workbench in Solidworks. When I generated the part in Ansys, I saw parametric values. But I make an assembly with the part in Solidworks and I can't see whole parametric values in Ansys. What is the problem ?Part fileAssembly file

      In SOLIDWORKS, create a global variable Equation in the Assembly file for the parameter you want to use in ANSYS, then use that Equation in the Part file so that the assembly is driving the part. Or create an Assembly Sketch that uses that Equation, and create the Part using that sketch geometry.


      When you import the assembly into DesignModeler, the parameter will be seen because it is in the assembly file.

      Thank you for your help.I will try it.

      Hello,


      I designed and assembIed solid in Solidworks 2016. I did static structural analysis in Ansys 17.0 . When optimization Ansys gave an error. What's the error reason?

      Hello,


      When you have a parametric CAD design and a Design of Experiments (DoE) table to explore the design space over a range of parameter values, some of the parameter values can create a model that will not be valid for some reason. Either the geometry is impossible, or the mesher fails to mesh, or the boundary conditions fail to be applied or the solver fails to solve.


      The message is telling you to go to a failed row in the Parameter Set, and make that row the current design. Then perform a manual update, look at the geometry, look at the mesh, look at the BCs and solve. In this way, you can find the reason why that design point failed.

      How can I make the error row current design? I must design incerrect parameters again in Solidworks or Can Ansys do it? Because I didn't find in Ansys.

      Right click on the row and say Make Current.
