TAGGED: Add Material, Discovery Live
August 28, 2018 at 12:30 pmandrohandballSubscriber
I accidentally delete the material (air and water). So is it possible to restore it because now I can't run the flow simulation and my ansys discovery immediately shut down after I click on create solution

Go to %AppData%RoamingSpaceClaim and rename "Discovery" folder to "Discovery_old" and launch Discovery Live again.

Hello Naresh Patre
Thank you for your answer but now when I change the name of that folder I can't even open the ansys discovery because I get an error message like: windows is finding SpaceClaim.exe
And if I want to find it myself than when I go to roaming map there is no such a map.
So now I don't now what to do.
I even try to uninstall and install again, without my antivirus and everything is the same.

RITEH12 Are you sure you renamed "Discovery" folder to "Discovery_old"? This folder is located in C:Users
AppDataRoamingSpaceClaim. This "Discovery" folder contains another folder named "MaterialLibrary" which inturn hosts an xml file with material data from your current session. So by renaming the "Discovery" folder, we are trying to clear this material data.
Secondly, while reinstalling, did you install in admin mode?

Naresh Patre yes I install in admin mode and I rename the map like you said.
But after that I try to open the Ansys discovery with my shortcut on the desktop and it gave me that error I mentioned before.
After that computer found the map and fix it by himself but I still can't run the simulation because there is no material a could choose.

RITEH12 That's a bit strange! When I deleted "Water' material, I was able to bring it back successfully by renaming the "Discovery" folder.
Can you try creating a new "Water" material using below material properties and see if you can use it?
Alternatively, you can also find the material properties for water in MaterialLibrary.xml located at

Naresh Patre thank you very much.
Now I open structural simulation and than I add material over there.
After that Ansys recognize Air when I run flow simulation.
Thank you again.
