I have a spaceclaim file that I'm trying to import into the fluent mesher but I get the following errors

importing meshing model from PartMgr from file 'H:\Part 4\GDP\Fluent Practice\Script-practice\Front-wing-script\straight-line.scdoc' failed.)

ran ANSYS TGrid CADToTGridConverter in 1.115 [s]


======== Command Execution Log Manager ========


Number of execution logs: 2











Error: Error in CAD Import

Error Object: #f

I have this error on any spaceclaim model I attempt to open (even a simple cube) and on models that I have already opened in the mesher. I get this error randomly, some days it will let me import spaceclaim models and some days it wont even when it is the same file being imported in the same way.

for reference the file I'm attempting to import is attached. 

Has anyone experienced this before or have any idea how to sort it?

Which version you are trying?

Can you please use and install latest R19.2.

thank you for your reply.

I am using fluent 19.1 but cannot use 19.2 as I am using a university workstation and do not have access to that version.

If it's random then it's likely to be IT related. Are you using a teaching or research licence?

Quick questions:

  • are you seeing this error with any SCDM geometries?
  • have you tried importing a simple DM geometry?
  • could you try importing a generic file format - parasolid or stp and see if you are getting this error?

please let us know what you find.

apologies for the late reply, I do believe it is an IT issue but my IT department doesn't seem to want to do anything about this. either way I found a work around. I can upload the geometry to the DM as you suggested then in the mesher export the meshdat file to import into the fluent mesher.
