Import Moldflow files

    • Cedricoliveira

      Good night,

      Does anyone have a procedure to import Moldflow generated files to Ansys.

      I generate the db and cdb files in Moldflow but than I can't retrieve the results to make a structural simulation in ANSYS

      Hi Cedricoliveira,

      I have heard from a Mechanical support engineer that

      "You should be able to resume the db in MAPDL or read in the cdb in either MAPDL or WB Mech via External Model.  Then set up and run the structural analysis."

      Please also note that

      " Moldflow can export undocumented (retired) element types and commands.  So user needs to be aware."

      Thank you,
