There are two options for importing a geometry from a universal file (UFF), the first involves using the Simcenter Desktop ‘Navigator’ tab to convert a UFF into a new Testlab project which will contain the geometry and other data stored in the UFF ( i.e FRF’s, Mode Sets etc). Alternatively, you can use the ‘Geometry’ add-in to import a geometry into the currently open project.

1st Method -

 

  • Using the details folder pane browse to the location of the univeral file you would like to import.

  • Select the folder where the newly created Testlab project will stored

  • After opening the Simcenter project file you will find your geometry and any other data that was in the UFF ( FRF’s, Mode sets, etc).
