Is it possible to import a CAT product/Part in Ansys Workbench with the parameters defined on Catia ? i need to use those parameters to perform optimization study. I have tried to rename the parameter by using DS and add publication but it doesn't work at all, i have the geometry imported in Ansys without the parameters.
Thanks in advance for your help !

I think you need the Catia licence add on to do this: chances are you don't have it. Depending on the model can you import the CAD and recreate the part that needs the parameters in Workbench? DesignModeler may be the best tool for this as the sketches are more easily altered for parametric studies.

Thanks for the reply !
Effectively i don't have that Catia licence.
Is it possible to import the geometry and then modify it ? if yes, in which format (CAT, STP, igs....)
Recreate the model in DesignModeler is going to be really difficult cause i used Surfacic in Catia to do the geometry, and i don't know if it is possible in DM.

SpaceClaim will read pretty much anything, DesignModeler will take STP, iges & Parasolid with no problems (I prefer STP). As I don't know what Surfacic does, or what your model looks like I can't comment on difficulty!

OK thanks you so much,
i will try to modify first my geometry if i cannot succeed i will try to recreate it on DM

Depending on what the parameter is you can bring most of the model in and then replace the bits that need to be parameterised.
