      Hello,


      I want to follow this youtube tutorial:


      The only issue is that I cannot find the Boolean feature in Ansys 19.0. Can someone help me? What should I do?


      Kind regards,


      Monica

      I haven't got any "create" in my toolbar.

      Hi, 


      This is SpaceClaim. 


      In this, you can use Combine tool under Design tab.

      Thank you! It opens automatically in SpaceClaim when I click on "Geometry" -> "Edit" in Workbench. Can I change it? I should mention that I am a beginner. Thank you so much!

      It should give as following.


       


      Once you open Design Modeler, you can import file in the session using File menu in DM.

      Should Design Modeler be downloaded separately? Thank you!

      DM need not be installed separately. It should get installed with default installation. Can you please try reinstalling it. 


      Also you can continue operations in SpaceClaim instead of DM. SpaceClaim is also very user friendly. You will need to use only Combine tool for boolean operations. I would recommend you to go ahead with SpaceClaim. You would love it.

      Hi Monica,


      Are you using the Free ANSYS Student version or some paid academic/commercial license ?


       


      I'm guessing that the latter would be the case here. It's likely that you have a licensing issue.


      In this case, check if you have licenses for ANSYS Design Modeler.


      You can try this command in CMD Prompt (change your installation path accordingly)


      “C:Program FilesANSYS IncShared FilesLicensingwinx64ansysli_util” -checkout ANS_DM


      Note: Copy the entire thing including quote ""


      Please capture the screenshot of the output and put it in your post here.


      Thank you,

      please open a New Discussion.nWhen you do, please insert some images to show the problem you are having.nSay what version of ANSYS you are using, say what CAD system created the UAV geometry, say what file format you exported from your CAD system, say which ANSYS app you are using: SpaceClaim or DesignModeler.n
