Error import model

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

i have problems to impot a model geometry in AcuConsole.

When i import my Parasolid File (.x_t) i get the following error:

What could i do to solve this Problem?

Should i change something in my model?

 

 

Kind regards

Michael

That message "There are zero region sets in the model" typically means there are no 'solid' bodies represented in the parasolid file.  If the parasolid file definitely has 'solids' represented (which could also be the fluid volume, but from a solid modeler), there could be an issue with the CAD.  If the file only has surfaces, you'll need to enable the 'Fill Voids' option on the import geometry panel.  This will then create the volumes which are enclosed by surfaces, during the import process.

Hallo acupro, thank you for your reply.

 

But now i get an other error while the import:

Here are my settings for Export and Import the parasolid file.

 

 

Export in HM:

Import in AcuSolve:

Should i Change something in my Settings?

 

Kind regards

If you're doing geometry manipulations in HM, it's probably better to do at least the surface meshing there, then export Fluent/Nastran mesh to import to AcuConsole for the volume meshing.  Or you could do the entire surface/volume meshing in HM.  The parasolid export after manipulation in HM is not that robust.  What is the source of the original CAD?  Or - is it built entirely in HM?
Also - that image above indicates a size of 1.7 km in X.  Is that correct?

Hallo acupro,

 

thank you for your Reply. You are right, it is the wrong unit. It must be "mm".

The source of the original is from CAD, it is a step file of a tank. I want to simulate a slosh-test in AcuSolve.

 

I followed your proposal and meshed the surcface and the volume in HM.

  • the Surface with element type "mixed".
  • the Volume of the tank with CFD tetramesh.

The Export with Nastran (.bdf File) works and i can open the model in AcuConsole, thank you for that!

 

 

 

I have also tried an direct export to AcuConsole (.inp File). Acu.JPG.4a36aebd29a84faf32686edfef6cd88b.JPG

 

 

But when i execute this export i get an error which i don´t undersand.

Could you help me with this error?

Is that an better way to Export the model from HM to AcuConsole?

 

 

Kind regards

Michael
