Does anyone know a method to import multiple parameterized volumes from UG to Mechanica LINKED mode? I want to retain UG parameters of my volumes (solid) while simultaneously importing other non-volume parameterized geometry from UG. I can use either Mechanica 2001 or Wildfire 2.0. I'm using UG NX 2.0 on a windows PC.
I'm looking for any method to import multiple parameterized solids and/or parameterized non-solid UG geometry into Mechanica linked mode.
Does anyone know if a "demo option" environmental variable exists to allow this?
One other related question: Is the above possible if I were using Pro/E?
If you were using Pro/E, I think your life would be easy. Especially with integrated mode Mechanica. Your Pro/E parametric solid model runs directly in Pro/Mechanica. Make any changes in the solid and those link to the Mechanica model. Are you wanting to optimize geometry in Pro/Mech and have that link backward to the solid model? If so, I still think Pro/E will do it & make life easier.
Not sure what you mean on "non-volume parameterized geometry", I guess surfaces?
