Uploading CATIA files


#1

Hi,

Could I open CATParts from CATIA onto SimScale? I understand you need stls for the mesher, but I see the option to upload CATIA files has been added. Would this mean I can get accurate results with this file format just like stls?

Best

Hi Tina!

You can upload Catia files without any concerns. Assuming here that you pre-processed the files properly for the simulation.

Cheers!

What do you mean by pre-processing?

How you prepared your CAD models. Generally speaking there could only be a difference in the results if there’s a bug in the geometry which is very rare - so just continue with your study :slight_smile:
