Hello everyone,

I am working on a FSAE chassis as we speak. I am quiet new to Ansys and is finding it difficult to figure out a few things. I have designed my chassis on SolidWorks using weldments and is planning to do the analysis on Ansys. When I imported the geometry to Ansys, I noticed that the mass of the whole model is different from the mass evaluation in SolidWorks ( I've changed the engineering data ). I think that the Ansys by default is taking each member as beams. How do I change the model type to pipes or tubes. I am using Ansys 19. 

correct me if I'm wrong. Also appreciate any advice that would help me down the road. Looking forward to learn.

are you sure the material that you generated in solidworks is same the the other material in ansys? I am talking about the properties of material.And second think,

I am not sure bout you can introduce your model what type of you want in spaceclaim.
