Hello,

I am having troubles importing my model from NX11 learning edition to ANSYS 17.1. I have tried the configuration to link them and run ANSYS directly from NX but it does not work.

Any advice on how to get it to work? Any answers appreciated.

Hi Joe,

Are you using ANSYS student version ? Because I think student version doesn't support NX interface with ANSYS.

Here is the list of 'reader' that is supported by student version

###

Geometry Import:

Neutral format import IGES, STEP

Parasolid (native within ANSYS DesignModeler)

###

Thank you,

Win

Correct Win, the free Student products only support neutral file imports and Parasolid. The bi-directional geometry connections are not supported. 

Joe: You should be able to export your geometry in Parasolid format from NX11, and you can then import that into the Student Product's "Geometry" application (Spaceclaim or DesignModeler) . However, note that you will need to insure that you adhere to the geometry limits of the student product, for example you can't import a thousand part assembly with tens of thousands of facets.
