I am trying to analyse weld toe stress in T joint made of circular hollow section ( pipe ). 3D Model is prepared in solidworks with solid elements and sweep feature. The weld profile edges are all consistent in solidworks however when I import the model with .iges into ansys and assign share topology it breaks all boundary edges. This creates difficulties with meshing the part. Can anyone please advise on what is the solution here?
Both solidworks native file and .iges attached
