Problem with geometry

      Hi,


      I would like to mesh a model of a car, but every parasolid geometry I load to design modeler is too complex, and I can't mesh anything. What can I do simplify geometry?

      Hi,


        You can try using Virtual Topology, This can help you in reducing the number of elements in the model.

      Hello, 


      There are limitations on no. of faces of geometry for student version. 


      Can you please reduce your model? From where you got this parasolid file?

       Sorry, but I don't know anything about this tool, could you please explain to me how to use it?

      Hi,


      Please have a look at the following videos. Also please have a look at Cornell University course at https://www.edx.org/course/a-hands-on-introduction-to-engineering-simulations

      kkanade,


      I loaded solidworks file to solidworks and saved file as parasolid. But I have deleted every redundant solid or surface, but it still not enough.

      Hi, 


      Looks like you have to simplify your model further. 


      Can you please create test case. Please create a simple box in solidworks and export parasolid. Then import in DM.

      Hi Keyur,


      I did this and it worked.

      So its no. of faces of your parasolid file. You need to reduce it in solidworks and then export parasold.
