File Export From Pro E to Ansys

Which version of Pro E wildfire 5 is compatible with Ansys 14? I'm using Creo M080. There is no option in pro E to export the file directly to Ansys 14 workbench. If file is imported in workbench, it gives error. Whats the solution?

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

Hi Kashif,

You can export your 3D model from Pro/E in STEP and PARASOLID format and then import it in Ansys Workbench.

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

My 3D model is an assembly. I've made that using top to down approach so there is a skeleton in it. Also the joints are welded. Using PARASOLID or STEP format, the weldings are not treated as weld. Please help me because I'm blocked in my work at this point. Thanks alot

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

When you import a geometry in project of static analysis ("Static Structural" -> "Geometry" -> "Import Geometry") there is appears a list of supported files. Here's how the list looks like in Ansys Workbench 13.0 version:

You can also add a spot weld already in Ansys.

P.S. I may try to import your assembly in ".asm" format in Ansys Workbench 13.0 static structural project.

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

How can I share my assembly with you, using Google Drive?

Also if you can share a link having information about spot weld in Ansys workbench.

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

What will be the size of your assembly if it is compressed in the archive (by using WinRAR, WinZip, 7-Zip)? You can attach to a message a file with a maximum size of 50 Mb.

ok here it is.

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

Hi,

I have created two static analysis projects and used as geometry Parasolid and STEP file formats. This files "car.x_t" and "car_asm.stp" must be placed along the path: "C:\Temp\".

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

I will reply you soon.

Thanks a lot

Re: File Export From Pro E to Ansys

Just note that I got the error in Ansys Workbench 13.0 when trying to directly import geometry in Pro/E ".asm" format.
