      Hello everyone,

      In the ANSYS Workbench (2020 R1), I cannot find the component that exports the .k file from ANSYS to LS-Dyna (Explicit Dynamics, LS-Dyna Export). I also checked the install log file and it shows me that I installed it. Could you please help? Thank you.

      I uninstalled, and then reinstalled ANSYS, but the problem still persists.n

      nGo to Tools -> Options -> Appearance and turn on “Beta options” and also turn on “Unsupported Features”n======================nThe LS-Dyna Export does require a Ansys LS-Dyna licensenIf it still doesn't show upnClick on View all/customize at the bottom of the toolboxnnThen turn on the LS Dyna Export systemnn============================nnLS PrePost can read in Nastran files. So, you can write out a Nastran file from Mechanical application. Being sure to set mesh pref to explicit. Then read it into LSPP and translate to k file.

      you can export k file by clicking write input file and you can choose .k and .key or you can look in the solve directory of your simulation and check for .k file and make sure you are on current system ncheers Ram n
