Importing geometry on Fluent from Sketchup?

      Hello everyone, I'm starting using Ansys and I'm a beginner. I'm asking you all if it is good importing geometry from Sketchup or it's better working with other modelling software like Solidworks or others. I tried to work also in Spaceclaim but I've to do building models and it's so difficult in my opinion. I hope to hear someone soon, thanks!

      I'd suggest working with a full CAD tool as it'll be more useful in the future: so Solidworks or SpaceClaim would be my recommendation. Obviously SpaceClaim is much better than Solidworks, but I may be slightly bias......  


      There are a fair few SpaceClaim tutorials on the ANSYS YouTube channel, and Raef has also written some for his. The big benefit of SpaceClaim is it links directly into Workbench for meshing, with other tools you'll need to export & import into SpaceClaim to use in Workbench.

      Ok, I'll see SpaceClaim tutorials to understand how it works. Thank you Rwoolhou!
