Hello, I am new here and new to ANSYS and I would like to learn about it.
As Bio-Medical engineers we use ANSYS and we have to combine it with Solidworks.
I try to import part from Solidworks (.SLDPRT file) and I get this error :"The selected file is of an unsupported or unconfigured Geometry type."
Please could you help me and tell me what seems to be the solution?
Thanks a lot

If you are using the free Student license with Workbench, you can double click on the Geometry cell of any analysis system such as Static Structural, and SpaceClaim will open. Then, in SpaceClaim, you can open the SolidWorks file.
If that doesn't work well, you can always Save As Parasolid from SolidWorks, then open the Parasolid file in SpaceClaim.

I have got over it by using .STEP file from solid.
Now i am facing another problem, when i double click on Model it gives me only gray screen, any suggesions?

Push the F7 key to Fit the View.

I am pretty sure its not about fitting the screen because i am getting this message "Error while waiting for Mechanical initialization to complete. Either the application crashed or Workbench lost communication with it."
What seems to be the problem?

are you able to open spaceclaim?
please create a new project. create a simple cube in spaceclaim and then open it in mechanical. check if you can open mechanical.
if you still get errors, please uninstall and reinstall ansys.
there is a limit on number of faces for student version.
If this helps, please mark this post as 'Is Solution' to help others.

I am using full version not student version. But I will try to re-install it
