      Hi All,

      I am not sure why my geometry doesnt open in ANSYS mechanical.

      What are the errors you are seeing? Have you been able to open your part in SpaceClaim/Design Modeler?

      Did you right click in WB and try updating the Model Cell, before you open Mechanical?

      Sandeep,

      i checked the geomtery with "Check Geometry" and it said its ok.

      ANSYS experts,

      SpaceClaim opens and I can see the geometry. I saved a SpaceClaim document, created a new Workbench file with a new Static Structural and Imported that SpaceClaim file into the Geometry cell.  When I Refreshed the system I got errors:

      • System.Exception: Unable to attach to geometry file E:ansysdatastudentcommunitySam.FaresLapped geometry 1.02.scdoc. Unable to attach geometry.

      I went back to SpaceClaim and used the Repair tab to check for various defects. Only Split Edges showed something, which I repaired, but that did not help the geometry to transfer to Mechanical.

      Sam,

      Open SpaceClaim, Save As STEP file.  Open a new Static Structural analysis and Import the STEP file into the Geometry Cell. That successfully Attached to the Model cell.

      You can also open the Geometry in SpaceClaim.

      Regards,
      Peter
