How to Navigate the Ansys Workbench UI — Lesson 1

    • Robert Clark

      Working through this lesson "How to Navigate the Ansys Workbench UI — Lesson 1". I downloaded the files from the ANSYS page, and ANSYS doesnt seem to like the provided geometry file. I am getting this error when i try to use it.

      The file will load when I open it in space claim, but will still not link to the geometry. Not sure what the issue is here. This is ANSYS 2022 R2.

      Hi Robert, I have checked on my end and I see no such error. I have tried in ANSYS 2022 R2 as well.

      I would suggest you to reset the app data and then re-download the geometry file and try again to see if the problem persists.

      Follow the steps below to reset ANSYS Appdata:

      1. Exit ANSYS, if you are using it currently.
      2. Go to Start > Run
      3. Enter %APPDATA%
        1. A folder explorer window will open
        2. Open the Ansys folder. Look for the Ansys version you are using, for example, v222, and rename it to v222_Old
      4. Launch ANSYS and refresh the project

      Exit Anys and SpaceClaim

      Run the Ansys CAD Configuration Manager "Run As Adminstrator"

      Select: "SpaceClaim" checkbox..

      Select: Next

      Select: Configure Selected CAD interfaces... 

      Confirm the log displays:  "SC  Workbench  PlugIn ..... Configure Success"

      Thanks for the fix!!!

      The Discovery Workbench Plugin is not configured, will that mess anything up for me in the future?

      Discovery was probably not installed. If not, the plugin will not configure.
