I Have a sketchup model, I want to simulate, I’ve tried and failed to import:
- I’ve exported from sketchup to .stl, and got SimScale to import the geometry, but when I’m trying to create a mesh - I get the following message:
Error: The meshing algorithm currently does not support the file format of the selected mesh base. Currently supported: stp, step, igs, iges, brep, prc, sldprt, sldasm, ipt, iam, x_t, catpart, catasm, 3dm, prt, asm
- I’ve imported the model into Onshape. then when I’m trying to import it from Onshape to SimScale - i get in SimScale:
Something went wrong. Please try again or with some other model.
After this I see Onshape notifications:
Translation failed - ... failed to translate.
What’s the workaround?
SimScale project https://www.simscale.com/workbench/?pid=1801858002258870383#tab_0-0 , geometry is called “forces”
