missing faces when importing deformed body

      Hi,

      I did a structural simulation and the solution is connected to another structural tree to export the deformed body into pmdb. Finally I opened in Geometry modeler and exported to x_t. But when I export, the parasolid file have only surfaces and lot of faces are missing as in the picture

      Could you try exporting in a different file format like STEP or IGES and see if that works? If that doesn't work could you import the pmdb file into spaceclaim instead of design modeler and check?

      Thanks for the suggestion.
      I have already tried with STEP and the issue remains same and I am not licensed to use spaceclaim .
      May be the ansys couldnt derive the curvature shape after deformation.

      When you connect the solution cell of the first to the model of the second and then open the second analysis, is the geometry defect free?
      Regards.

      yes I Dont see any problem without deformation. Sometimes when I try different deformation some other faces are missing.

      Could you post an image showing mesh of the deformed geometry and along with the defective geometry highlighting areas where faces are missing. "Finally I opened in Geometry modeler and exported to x_t" - when you opened the geometry in design modeler did you see any missing faces. Or was it after the export?
      Regards Ishan.
