      Hi,

      I am a student how write my master thesis. I will model various bridge typs using mostly SHELL181 elements. However, I want an efficient way of creating and adjusting geometries into the ANSYS MECHANICAL ENTERPRISE. My intial idea was to creat geometries in Spaceclaim, export as .anf file and then using /input, gemotry.anf. This doesn´t work unfortunally.

      In previoud example file i got they wrote sometinhg like this, however I noticed there can be some problems when using .igs files and that it is better to use .anf or .inp files: 

      ! Wand 1
      /AUX15                              
      IGESIN, RhinoModell_W1, igs         ! Import Rhinomodell
      /prep7                              
      NUMMRG,ALL                          
      asel,s,loc,z,-0.01,-100000  
      asel,u,loc,Y,2,100000
      aovlap,all
      NUMCMP,area                        
      allsel

      If someone could show me how to do that it would be healpfull.
      Thanks beforehand.
