Scripted GDS Import in SpaceClaim

      Hello,


      currently I want to automate the import process of a GDS file in SpaceClaim.


       


      I am using an IronPython Script to set up a system in ANSYS Workbench. As geometry of the system I want to import a GDS file in SpaceClaim. I could not find anything related to that in the API, nor in other posts. Is this even possible via script?


       


      Edit: It is possible to open a GDS file manually. Then there is pop-up note saying AnsTranslator succesfully translated the GDS file to something readable by SpaceClaim. Is it possible to use the translator to automatically translate the GDS before opening it in SpaceClaim?

      Go to file --> new --> script. 


      Here you can record the steps you are doing manually. Then you can use those commands.

      This does not work when I am using the IronPython from Workbench. I need to execute the commands from Workbench and Workbench Macro Recorder does not record macros in SpaceClaim.
