Help with surface naming in part in Solid Edge and pass to other CAE software

Experimenter

Hello, 

 

We would like to name some particular faces/surfaces of parts in Solid Edge and read it in some CAE software like ANSYS. We have tried the property table function in "Tool" Tab but the information still cannot be passed and read in ANSYS. Does it have another method to name the surface and pass the data to another software? 

 

Thanks for help!

 

Best Regards

Do you export the Solid Edge data and then import it into ANSYS?

What format is used?

Hi Tushar

 

Thanks for your reply. We have tried different format like .par, .jt and parasolid format but the same problem still occurs.

Hi Dorothea,

 

The Parasolid and JT formats have fewer chances than the native part format, but in the end, it depends on what the target software ANSYS would read from all that is available in the Solid Edge part file. ANSYS is perhaps ignoring the attribute data attached to the faces.
