Extract 2D Composites Optimization to CAD

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,


I am working on an Formula Student chassis.


After my composites optimization, I have now a fully optimized thickness in my chassis. But now, I want to export my 2D meshing in CAD file.


I saw previously the module "Shell to Solid Conversion", and tried to create a solid and an assigned PSOLID property.


What should I do now ? Because when I tried to export my solid, an error occurs : "No supported entities present for Export". 


I also tried with OSSmooth, but I have no .sh file associated with my solid model...


Thanks for helping !


Best Regards,

Hi @NicolasRi


You can export ply data to .stp format using "Ply Geometry smoothing" option available in OptiSrtuct Aerospace profile.


You can also use OSSmooth>> PLYShape option to export CAD data and you don't need a .sh file for this :)
