Import Line geometry to Ansys Mechanical?

      Hi,

      I'm learning Ansys via book and it demonstrates creating frames using line bodies in Design Modeler. I am far more comfortable using SolidWorks for modeling and would like to know if there's a method to import the geometry created by SW as a line body.

      Thank you.

      Use CCM (cad configuration manager) to interface SW with ansys.

      Hope this will work

        The Ansys plugin for SW is just a faster way to send the SW file into Ansys, it doesn't help with the conversion.

        What I'm asking is, let's say I have a 3D sketch in SW that I'd like to be treated as a line body in Ansys, what's the way to do it?

          yes if bodies have constant cross-section it can be converted to line bodies by extract tool under prepare tab in ansys spaceclaim
