Can I use STL files to create solid geometry in SpaceClaim Engineer?

Yes, there is a check box in the Options menu under the File options section for STL files: Import as body. Check this option on to import STL files as solids. This imports a solid with the same faces as the STL mesh and you can modify the geometry the same way you would edit solids created in SpaceClaim. Check ON the Merge Faces option to merge the mesh faces during import

September 10, 2020 at 7:07 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberwhen you import an STL file, you get exactly the original facets that are in the STL file.nDo you mean that if you have a smooth solid body, put a mesh on it, deform it in Static Structural then export the deformed shape, you get an STL file with a lot of facets?n

I have the same issue. I got a deformed geometry from static structural then exported that deformed shape as STL file. When I open it in HFSS, it becomes distorted. So I tried converting STL file to solid body in Spaceclaim, but I am stuck.
Ultimately, I was to perform EM analysis on deformed shape in HFSS.
