Unable to open File in Ansys SpaceClaim oder Design Modeler

      Hello,

      since yesterday I am unable to open .CATParts in either SpacClaim or Design Modeler. Before that it was perfectly possible without any problem to import .CATParts from CATIAV5 to the ANSYS eco system.

      When I try to do the same now, the following message appears in SpaceClaim: "Unable to initialize geometry interface" -> "Geometry interface not found" -> "Attach failed".

      Directly before I got this problem, I installed (and uninstalled) the AddOn CADNexus in order to be able to import CATIA V5 parameters to the Ansys eco system.

      I already tried uninstalling and installing all Ansys products, nothing has worked so far...


      Has anyone had a similar problem or knows the solution to this? This is getting very frustrating...


      Thanks.

      Hello,
      Can you try re-configuring the CAD interface? Ansys xxxx --> CAD configuration manager (make sure you run as administrator). When you configure, you should see a success message. Alternatively, check if you can import either a parasolid or a step file.

      I already tried that and it wasn't succesful unfortunately

      This is the config when I open the CAD Config Manager
      Is this the required setting in order to be able to open .CATParts?:
      If I try to configure it this way, the Plugin can't be installed...:
