December 3, 2020 at 5:48 pmebone2godSubscriberHi all,I have an APDL .db model that I need to make some geometry updates and add some components to. I'm not familiar with modeling in APDL, so I would like to import the APDL model into workbench and add/adjust the geometry using SpaceClaim. The issue that I am having is that, when using the External Model command to bring in the .cbd file created using APDL, I am not given any options to modify the geometry. An alternative option would be to create the necessary additional parts separately, then merge them with the imported APDL model and add the necessary constraints/connections; however, I'm not sure how to go about this.nI would be grateful for any suggestions anybody has on how I can modify an APDL geometry within Workbench!n
