Unable to find IBL file

Hello,

 

I exported an .ibl-file for a turbine blade from CFturbo. The file is created and I can see it in the explorer, but I cannot import in Creo. The file is not shown in the import window of Creo. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Unable to find IBL file

It seems that it is your file naming of these files that is the issue. I was able to rename one of the files to "test.ibl" and it imports as expected. Rename the files and test them, use a simple name for testing without special characters.

Hi,

 

I am unable to open the link because I am only using a Student version of Creo.

Re: Unable to find IBL file

Thanks for the answer. I tried this procedure, but the .ibl-File does not appear even though it is in the folder.

Re: Unable to find IBL file

Post the .ibl file and someone may be able to figure out the issue.

Re: Unable to find IBL file

When you attempt to open the file, did you change the Type in the dialog to .ibl File? Creo doesn't automatically show you every type of file it will read, it defaults to its own file types (.prt, .asm, etc.) If you want to read in a STEP file or IGES, or in your case IBL file, you specifically have to indicate as such in that little drop-down menu.

Re: Unable to find IBL file

I set the dropdown menu to "show all". I added the file in the attachment. Maybe there is something wrong with the file?

That Solution works, thank you 😊

Re: Unable to find IBL file

Creo has a  file name length restriction that other software may not have. 

Checking the file length is one of the first things to remember to check, especially if the file name does not show up in the open file menu list. Creo will not show a file in the dialog whose name exceeds its naming length limitation.
