You do not need to configure CADs to ANSYS to open different CAD geometries in ANSYS®. You could save as STP or IGES file your CAD geometry in CAD software, then you could export it directly to ANSYS to use in analysis in ANSYS®. So we will show you how to import STP and IGES files inside ANSYS to use as analysis geometry. You could import your CAD geometry in STP or IGES format into ANSYS by following the steps below.
Also, you will see that opening stp and iges files in ANSYS is very simple.
How to Open STP and IGES Files in ANSYS?
For example, you opened an analysis in the ANSYS® Workbench project schematic. Right-click on the Geometry section of your analysis in the project schematic, then hover your mouse on Import Geometry on the pop-up menu that opened and click on Browse… as shown with the red box above to open STEP and IGES files in ANSYS®.
After clicking on Browse…, find your STEP or IGES file on your computer on the screen. Also, you could open other types of file extensions. Click your STEP or IGES file as in the red box above, then click Open(Aç means Open in Turkish) as shown by the red arrow to open STEP and IGES files in ANSYS®.
So, your STEP or IGES file is opened in ANSYS®. The green tick as shown by the red arrow means your STEP or IGES file is opened in ANSYS®.
Above all, ANSYS supports different types of files and you can open them without any problem. You can check the other useful topics about ANSYS below.
