I'm having trouble with some CT-Scans. I'v imported them as .stl and used reversed engineering tools to clean them up. Then i modeled some geometry, used Trim and pricipially got what i wanted: the original structure of the CT-Scan on top of a solid. so far so good.
As I'm using NX11 my thought was that with convergent modeling i can export this body as a solid and use it for simulation. Thats what I want to do, the way via NX is not necessary if there is another way from stl to abaqus (well there is, direct import, but my pretty rough and detailed surface makes a lot of problems and I can not use mesh2geometry).
To finish my problem: I can NOT export the geometry as step, parasolid, iges, whatsoever. The only thing I get is empty files.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
Thanks for your reply, sounds demotivating
Abaqus is the tool of choice, i have to work with it, so i'll need need a solution ... and i dont want so select and convert every single triangle in abaqus manually.
