How to convert a Wire frame model into Solid model in ANSYS?

If you want to analyze a part under the application of loads,then you should has to import that model into ANSYS software in the form of Parasolid format or any other format.In this article,I will be explaining you about How to convert a Wire frame model into Solid model in ANSYS software in a detailed manner.

Explanation of Wire frame model into solid model:

A step by step procedure is to be adopted to understand how a model is analyzed by importing and how can we convert that wire frame model into solid model and is as follows.

Steps for converting a wire frame model into solid model:

1.Firstly,we should have to create a model with suitable dimensions with the help of design provided.

2.Save that model in any format.

3.Most of the designers save their model in the form of parasolid format which is easy to import in ANSYS.

4.Now,its the turn to import that model you had designed in the CAD software into ANSYS software.

5.Click on ANSYS  Icon and it opens a new dialogue box named ANSYS Multi physics Utility Menu.

6.Click on File-Import-Parasolid-Ok.

7.Then another dialogue box opens where you need to browse for that file which you are going to import into ANSYS.

8.In the same dialogue box,you will see two side boxes side by side showing the File and Directories.Choose the proper directory and proper file and click on List Files Type button in which you should has to mention the file type i.e.it may be of Parasolid etc. depending upon the file type chosen at the time of importing.

9.Two Check boxes are provided.Among them one is Allow Defeaturing and the other is Allow Scaling.The two boxes are to be Unticked.

10.Select the Geometry Type of your file  i.e. it might be a solid only,surfaces only,wire frames only and All entities.Click on Solids only button if your model is of solid type.

11.Click on OK.By this,the model is imported into the ANSYS software in the form of wire frame model.

12.To analyze,the wire frame model is to be converted into solid model which is shown below.

13.Click on Plot controls-Style-Solid Model Facets-Normal Faceting-OK.

14.By this your model is converted from wire frame to solid model.But,in some cases it is not so.For that you should has to right click on the black screen and say Replot.

15.That’s it…

This is the complete explanation reg.the conversion of a file from Wire frame model into solid model.Hope this post is useful to you.
