FEMPost & ANSYS

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....

Lyle,

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,

Regards,
Salman
