How to export deformed body or body eroded after explicit analysis as geometry file (stp or Iges)?

      Is there a way to export the deformed body of body that has undergone erosion in explicit analysis as a geometry file.nThis is to compute the mass of deformed or eroded body after impact.n

      Hello @rahulb, ,nThanks for connecting with us on Ansys Learning Forum.nFor your query, you may find following discussion useful. Please go through it and let us know if you have more questions. n

      Hi,recently, I want to caculate the shape change of a mechanical structure, which is loaded by the explosive blast in water. Using Explicit-Dynamics in Ansys, I'd like to get the result of multiple shock waves. A caculated result is attached.So, the question is how can I export or save the deformed shape or geometry ?https://us.v-cdn.net/6032193/uploads/8PCI05PLIVWL/1600671912.pnghttps://forum.ansys.com/discussion/20506/how-can-i-export-the-deformed-shape-or-geometry-in-explicit-dynamics

      To get the mass of the deformed/eroded body after impact, open the data folder (MECH) to look for the print file: admodel.prt. Use notepad to open the .prt file. Material summary and Energy summary are near the end of the file. Mass can be found from these summaries.nThe Solution of Explicit Dynamics system (deformed body) can be linked to a Geometry cell and opened in SpaceClaim. Then export the stp/iges files from SpaceClaim.n
