 In the ICEM, when I want to import geometry (file>import geometry>legacy) with iges format, there are only four options and lack of iges. This gives me a great trouble. I am sure I have bought a full version of fluent package, thus how can I add/find this geometry interface to ICEM? Or, if there is no way to import iges file directly, any other option can be used?   Thanks!

use file > import model.

Hi kkanade, thank you for your kind reply. Yes, I found the iges import interface in the 'import model'. However, the import process is always pending, and after about 10 minutes, an error message shows that 'Icem stops working' and asks me to close the software. I feel so strange because when I imported the same model into other software (Rhino, hypermesh...), there's no problem.

What should I do?

can you please check if you can import geometry in spaceclaim?

you can - 

open workbench

open iges in spaceclaim

connect icem to spaceclaim

open icem.

Thank you kkanade! Sorry there is no spaceclaim. Finally I tried change the format of the file to parasolid, then icem can import the file correctly.
