Hello all. I am creating a geometric pattern in the program AutoCad, for import into Femap use format sat. In older versions of Femap 10.3.1 when importing geometry automatically combining geometric elements. Where and how to set up the tolerance on the value of this association? In the attached file, the geometric model,how to download in femap 11 without combining elements of geometry?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Go to File / Preferences / Geometry Model / Geometry Preferences and check Optimize geometry on Import. I've done the test and it properly import your geomerty. This option was added in the V11.1.XX releases.
You have to check it (activate) not cancel it. I've import it from Geometry / import and using the "Optimize Geometry on Import" to my Femap version 11.1.1
I don't understand what is the problem by importing the geometry.
You would have each surface independently like in V10.3?
When you will mesh your geomtery you will need to merge those bracket surfaces and intersect them, no? How will you mesh this part?
If the geometry you want is the one you imported it in V10.3 then you can export a neutral file with only geometry and then open it with V11.1.1. You can also export a step file from Femap 10.3 and then import it in V11.1.1.
Then use Geometry / Midsurface / Intersect to cleanup the surfaces.
