Overview ANSYS Workbench is a CAD-neutral environment that supports bidirectional,

and associative interfaces with CAD systems

You can manipulate existing native CAD geometry directly without translation to intermediate geometry formats

Via plug-ins,

the associative interface allows you to make parametric changes from either a CAD system or from within ANSYS Workbench

ANSYS CAD integration supports smart and selective updates of CAD parts instead of updating an entire model

Overview Geometry Interface Support (p

Introduction With the understanding that all engineering simulation is based on geometry to represent the design,

there are two methods of accessing CAD models within ANSYS Workbench,

via: ANSYS DesignModeler or a CAD system

In ANSYS Workbench,

double-click Geometry in the Component Systems toolbox

You can also select Geometry in the Component Systems toolbox and drag it to the Project Schematic

From a CAD system,

select the Workbench option from the ANSYS drop down menu

Specific to ANSYS DesignModeler If a CAD session is currently open: 1

Select File> Attach to Active CAD Geometry

The bidirectional associativity is maintained

Refresh the geometry using parameter values either from the source CAD system or from the CAD parameters in the ANSYS DesignModeler’s Details View

You can control the parameter name suffix allowed from a CAD system to ANSYS Workbench

To allow all parameters (dimensions) created inside the CAD system to transfer to ANSYS DesignModeler,

remove “DS” in the Parameter Key filed of the Details View

To import CAD files: 1

Select File> Import External Geometry File

Associativity is not maintained

Geometry Interface Support When installing ANSYS Workbench,

you may select specific CAD systems in the ANSYS Geometry Interfaces section

Mixed Import Resolution

Allows parts of mixed dimension to be imported as components of assemblies which have parts of different dimension

The options are : None Solid Surface Line Solid and Surface Surface and Line The default is None which means that if there are bodies of mixed dimension in a multibody part,

nothing is transferred to the Mechanical application

Solid means only solid(s) from the part are transferred to the Mechanical application

Solid and Surface means only solid(s) and surface(s) from the part are transferred to the Mechanical application

Surface and Line means only surface(s) and line(s) from the part are transferred to the Mechanical application

Expected Body Imports The following table shows the expected body imports based on the composition of the part (top row) and the mixed dimension import resolution preference

It is assumed for this table that the body types indicated in the part are selected in the primary import options

F = surface

L = line

X = no import Solid-Surface-Line

This processing becomes significant after handling the basic import options (e

if only Import Solids is selected,

then only solid bodies would be imported) regardless of the Mixed Import Resolution

However,

when transferring the model from DesignModeler to Mechanical for a 3D Analysis,

the basic import options and Mixed Import Resolution option are not applicable

All unsuppressed bodies/parts in the model will be transferred to Mechanical

NOTE: In case of a 2D Analysis,

you should suppress all solid bodies in DesignModeler for a successful transfer

Mixed Import Resolution As Workbench geometry interfaces have expanded their ability to import parts of different dimension

the ability to control what is imported from an assembly has become more complicated

This is especially true for mixed-dimension parts (parts that contain bodies of different dimensions)

That has led to the advent of the mixed import resolution preference to be used in conjunction with the primary 14

Release 13

All rights reserved

and its subsidiaries and affiliates

Named Selection Manager import options (Import Solid,

Import Surface,

Import Line)

These work together to allow a user the maximum control over the import of his model

Each part is passed through the primary option filter first

If no bodies are found that match the selected preferences the part is skipped

If bodies of single dimension are found the part is processed for import

If bodies of multiple dimensions are matched then,

is the mixed dimension resolution option used to filter the part a second time

The remaining bodies pass through the selected filter option and those that match the preference's criteria are imported

If no bodies match or NONE is the preference option the part is skipped entirely

Named Selection Manager Use the Named Selection Manager to create custom attributes with CAD systems for modeling,

meshing and performing analysis within ANSYS Workbench

Release 13

All rights reserved

and its subsidiaries and affiliates

Overview This mechanism is activated by selecting the Named Selection Manager menu item from the current ANSYS release menu inside the CAD system (with the exception of OneSpace Modeling)

The Named Selection Manager displays groups created only in this tool but the plug-in will continue to support those previously imported in earlier ANSYS releases

The Named Selections are always listed alphabetically

The Named Selection Manager supports defining Name Selection Groups within CAD through the following operations

Create: Pre-select entities to designate for the NS Group,

click on “Create” button and designate a name for the group

Some CAD systems (e

Solid Edge and NX) allow the selection between the Create and Naming operations

Delete: Select a group from the Named Selection Manager list followed by clicking the “Delete” button

The Delete option allows you to delete the chosen named selection

Note that a confirmation dialog box does not appear before that deletion

Rename: Select an entry from the Named Selection Manager group list,

click on the “Rename” and supply a new group name

The Rename option allows you to change the name of the selected group

Replace: Pre-select entities to compose the Named Selection,

The newly selected set will replace the entities in the Named Selections

No previous entities will remain except those which were selected at the time of the “Replace” operation

Select/Deselect: Help tools which allow for verification of a Named Selection Group’s contents

Close: Closes the existing Named Selection Manager dialog

Help: Opens Workbench help

Overview

Caveats and Known Issues Geometry Import Fails ANSYS Workbench leverages a running CAD session to update models if one exists

If you change the geometry source to a file that cannot be opened in the running session,

the update will fail with an unable to activate document error

Some reasons this may occur are if the new model is from a version of the CAD system later than the one running or if another file of the same name is already opened in the CAD from another directory

Hidden or Suppressed Parts the geometry interface

Parts that are hidden or suppressed in CATIA are skipped automatically by

Installation and Licensing Because the individual CAD systems are listed with the other components during the product installation,

you can select the CAD systems that you wish to install

Some product components,

require administrative permissions to register

If you install with non-administrative privileges,

you must follow the post-installation procedures as an administrator for your product to ensure that all components are successfully registered

File Format Support Within ANSYS Workbench,

the CAD files can be attached in either Plug-In or Reader mode

Document import supported by interface: Part (*

Notes The DesignModeler application imports ANSYS BladeGen on Windows systems only

The BladeGen import produces a flow path,

which is the air or fluid surrounding the blade

The import procedure is a three-step process: 1

Read the blade data from the BladeGen database,

Convert the data to Parasolid format,

Read the Parasolid data into the DesignModeler application

It is important to note the scaling factor when importing ANSYS BladeGen models

If an incorrect Model Unit setting is chosen,

it is possible that the ANSYS BladeGen model will fail to import into the DesignModeler application

In some cases,

tolerance issues will prevent the Parasolid conversion from succeeding,

or it may produce a distorted flow path

In these cases,

it is recommended to try using a larger Model Unit setting

NOTE: ANSYS BladeGen database files must be updated with the Generate option prior to proceeding with an analysis
