Solid model information difference between APDL and WB

    • andreapirocca


      I am trying to import a Parasolid geometry saved from Solidworks both in APDL and in WB. The fact is that, when I import it in APDL, all the keypoints, lines, areas and volumes of the model are recognized (see the first picture).

      Hi AndreanThis is expected operation. Workbench Mechanical passes only mesh node/elements to APDL. No solid model data is passed to APDL. We use APDL as the solver only.
