i can’t find my CATPart modeling file on ansys apdl 2022 R2

    • jeon hyeon min

      hello, I'm learing mechanical engineering using ansys APDL 2022 R2.

      My question is, when i import my modeling file into ansys, There's no geometry.

      extension is CATPart (catia modeling file).

      I can succesfully import my modeling file in ansys interface as I pictured below


      But when I use macro code for modal anaylsis, There's no Geometry like picture below

      Here's my macro code for importing catia modeling file named '13'



      ! modal analysis
      filename = 'catia_analysis'



      /input,start,ans,'C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\v222\ANSYS\apdl\'

      )/GOP    ! Resume printing after UNDO process
      )! We suggest a save at this point



      Is there any problem in my code or error(crash) between ansys and catia version?

      thanks :)

      I would recommend to use Workbench mechanical, much easier to use, and we have lots of courses in this website.


      You can import it there and model there.


      All the best



      PS: for the apdl import issue this and see if there are any volumes listed (assuming it is a solid volume part):




      If nothing is listed then the import does not work

      Hi jeon

      This period seems to be out of place; please remove it and try the macro again:
