      Hi Vinay,

      The questions you have posted can be categorized into Discovery related queries and queries related to ANSYS flagships. Please note that for flagship queries, student community is the platform to be used. Hence, I can only revert to the discovery queries here on the forum.

      As mentioned here,  Discovery AIM Student only supports neutral formats for import. Hence, I suggest you to convert your solidworks model into IGES or STEP format, which should then import into AIM without any issue. 

      If you are looking for a high fidelity analysis, Discovery AIM is most suitable but for quick design exploration, Discovery Live is more appropriate tool.

      As mentioned above, please use ANSYS student community for all other queries related to Mechanical.

      Best Regards,
