Import Link Elms From ADPL to Workbench

      Is the above possible?  It works fine with beam elements made in Ansys but links appear to cause an issue.


      Links are preferred for their ability act in tension or compression for this case.

      Here are some instructions for using APDL in Workbench.

       Thank you for the link.


      Unfortunately I've been through many of them (except the German video) and although I've had success with beams and solid elements with the Ansys Finite Element Modeler and External Model, link elements remain problematic.


      I've attached a adpl .db in case you are willing to give it a go.

      The ANSYS Release 19.1 program's External Model feature can now import a Mechanical APDL cdb file including support of LINK180 elements.
