Retaining SolidWorks material properties

    • jmoss

      Is it possible to retain material properties orignally assigned in a SolidWorks model when importing into SpaceClaim and/ or Ansys WorkBench?   Thanks in advance.

      That should be possible (make sure that under properties of the geometry cell, and under basic geom. options,that the material properties are checked – also I think we need Associative Geometry Interface for SW and Reader)

      See help for more info:

      Geometry Preferences (

      and perhaps this helps also
