What is the best method to import a deformed mesh in to Electric

      Hi, I do have this requirement to get the deformed mesh from a Static Structural Solution and Input that mesh in to a Electric Solution. For now I use the below nodal setup. But this gives me a Solid Body with lot of facets, Repairing this is messy. What would be the best option to get a clean deformed Solid in to Electric

      Faceted body cannot me meshed in mechanical. If the geometry isn't very complicated you could right click on the facet body and convert that into solid with the merge faces option. This way you can mesh the solid body. Prior to conversion use the check facets option and make sure that there are no issues with the faceted body. If there are errors try the auto fix tool or else proceed to conversion. If you are using a student version which has a 300 face limit, you might have to reduce the number of faces using the skin tools- create multiple surfaces, close them and then convert to a solid.
