      In Workbench, look in the Toolbox and below the full analysis systems are Components. One of them is External Model. Drag one of them out onto the Project Schematic. Edit that and point to the mesh file and Update.  Drag out a Static Structural.  Drag the External Model Setup cell onto the Model line of the Static Structural.



      • What program generated the mesh? 

      • What export format was used to write the mesh out of that program?

      • Where was the geometry created for that mesh?

      The best format is ANSYS, the next best is NASTRAN, then ABAQUS. What formats are available?
