Ok, I know I'm asking a lot of questions about this, but I value this group's experience & input. Do any of you have experience using Mechanica's FEMPost functionality to examine results from ANSYS? Please tell me strengths, weaknesses, etc. Thanks We're on WF2, if it makes a difference.... --

I have used this interface briefly and it worked fine for me, however; -As Yuri pointed out; material properties, boundary and initial conditions are all limited to linear capabilities in Pro/M -Post processing quantities are also limited to those defined in Pro/FEM. While running directly in ANSYS gives you a slightly extra edge in what quantities you can view. For example stress/strain along a certain path/edge. -Post processing results in Pro/FEM is easier for viewing than in ANSYS, but I used to use ANSYS 6.0 and may be newer versions are different.
Hope this helps,
