Solid body turning into surface bodies in ansys fluid flow (fluent)

      Hello Everyone, 

      I desined a solid part in Fusion 360. I imported the design in the IGES format in the Ansys Fluid Flow (Fluent). However, after importing it, instead of showing one solid body, it is showing 113 surface bodies. I'm very confused. Any help please? Thanks

      Hello, 

       

      Try following these steps:

      Go to 'Create' > 'Body Operations' > Set 'create solids' and merge bodies' (optional) to 'yes' > Select all the surfaces and execute the task. 

       

      Otherwise, I would recommend you to use Repair > 'Stitch' option in Ansys Discovery/SpaceClaim. 

       

      Thanks!

      Try STEP and Parasolid too.  The gold tick on the import implies something didn't quite work, so try another format (IGES isn't always a good option).
