I've just installed the newest student package of Ansys including Spaceclaim, fluent, fluent-meshing ... Unfortunately, an error message occurs while importing the geometry into fluent-meshing. The error message stays for different geometries the same. I tried to reinstall the whole Ansys package and cleaned up my registry. Nothing helped so far...
After preparing my geometry as shown in a tutorial by Ansys, I'll get the following error:
Error: Error in CAD Import
Error Object: #f
Error: Error occurred during import.
Error Object: #f
Error: Importing the selected file could not be completed. Check to make sure that the selected file format is supported. In addition, check to make sure the CAD Readers are properly configured for the format using the CAD Configuration Manager utility.
Error Object: #f
Looking forward to your answers!March 22, 2022 at 8:28 pmGeorge KarnosAnsys EmployeeWhat type of Geometry are you trying to import?
Supported Geometry Import:
Neutral format import IGES, STEP
Parasolid (native within Ansys DesignModeler)
March 22, 2022 at 8:34 pmqschwanSubscriberI followed this step-by-step tutorial: https://courses.ansys.com/index.php/courses/wind-blade-analysis-for-wind-power-using-ansys-fluent/lessons/geometry-lesson-3-23/
The original geometry is saved as STEP

March 23, 2022 at 3:57 pmqschwanSubscriberDouble checked that as well and the error still remains. I saved the geometry file and the whole project folder onto my desktop in a separate folder. I had issues with the 2021 Version also, which is the reason I've installed the newest version. In an older version than 2021, everything worked fine (workbench workflow and fluent itself).
I've tried to redo the steps with the design modeler. The problem remains...
I also tried to import a geometry that I used in an older version. The error is the same...
March 23, 2022 at 5:30 pmRobAnsys EmployeeCan you try from C:\userid\ansys or similar? I'm not sure what the path for Desktop is.
March 25, 2022 at 4:56 pmqschwanSubscriberTried to open it directly from C:\Ansys but the error remains...
I am going to reinstall it once again with a fresh download from the website. I'll keep you updated.
March 25, 2022 at 5:17 pmRobAnsys EmployeeThanks. Test with a "simple" cube straight from SpaceClaim to Fluent Meshing too.
March 25, 2022 at 6:18 pmqschwanSubscriberIt seems like I fixed the problem. I changed the installation from D:\ (SATA) to C:\ (SSD) where windows is installed too.
But I don't know why this helped...
Anyways, thank you for your help!
