Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to write a VBScript for Ansys q3d extractor .I have a DXF file that I wanted to import it into Ansys Q3D extractor, each time this file is changed in terms of number of conds

for example: file1

when I import it into the Ansys Q3d extractor software I got 69 cond

file 2

when I import it into Q3d extractor I got 72 cond

so I would like to know how to merge the objects that intersect automatically because each time the number of objects changes from one file to another.

That's what I want regardless of the number of objects file 3)


 here is the code that I did for a single file but I want it to automatically detect and test the conds that intersect and merge them since I have several different DXF files haven't the same number of conds.

Thank you. Help me please

Hi bwide,

 Instead of using a script to do this. Try the below procedure:

 1) Select all the objects and unite them. Now they will be shown as single object in the Modeler tree.

 2) Now select the object and select the menu item Modeler > Boolean > Separate bodies.

 Let me know if you have any questions.
