Hi Friends, 

Currently Workbench is not taking Parasolid file through import option in ANSYS Student V 18.2. Highlighted error in ANSYS Meshing is shown below:


Workaround: You need to import the file in Design Modeler (DM) first and then proceed for meshing. 


Hopefully we will fix this bug in our upcoming version soon. 

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Vishal,

The same behavior was in Student 17.2 also and the same workaround was used.

I have a commercial license at work which includes Parasolid Import, so I can import in Workbench. The simple fix is to add the Parasolid import license to the Student license.

Thanks for the clarification Peter. Let me work with licensing team.
