Re: Bringing the drawaings of Inventor to CFD and simulate

06-11-2013 05:31 AM in reply to: cpatil365

Dear sirs,

 

 I did that , but without unisntalling the CFD or Inventor. see the links below.

2014-Inventor geometries not opening in 2013 -inventor.

and morever the CFD -2013 or the Inventor-2013  are stand alone, Not in One. 

 

so I want to save my time instaed of redrwa in 2013-inventor and exporting still problem if CFD is not in one hood/ribben.

 

Pls help.

CFD 2013 and Inventor 2013 are separate standalone applications.

If you can the SimCFDConfig after installing Inv2013 and you open one of our CFD tutorials in Inventor 2013 you should see the launcher in Inventor for pushing geometry from Innventor 2013 to CFD 2013.

 

You will not have a launcher in Inv2014 due to it being notably newer than CFD 2013

As you can see by the error message, you cannot open Inv2014 files in Inv2013.

I've also already suggested a potential workaround of saving out an acis (sat) to see if that would work in CFD 2013 from Inv2014.

You could also take the above mentioned acis (sat) and load that in to Inv2013 to launch to CFD

 

 

CFD2013 - Supports launching from Inv2013 as well as loading acis(sat) directly

CFD2014 - Supports launching from Inv2014/2013, as well as loading Inv geometry deirectly and loading acis(sat) direct.

 

The path you previously mentioned of exporting a parasolid can work, however, the fact taht you were missing parts indicates you had problematic geometry that would need to get cleaned up first.

Dear sir,

 

I tried that way also But still I am unable to get the CFD tab in the inventor. 

I am  re-thinking that, I can completely uninstall the CFD-2013, and re install the CFD 2013, so that It may install that time inside the Inventor 2013. But the issue is I am unable to uninstall to CFD 2013 also. No uninstallers in the "toollist".

 

I can only uninstall the 2014- CDF and Inventor, which I have in my computer already.

 

Pls help me in below issues:

 

1. I have already drawn huge geometries in 2014-Inventor. and CFD-2014 is not available for download for Student. hence I need to switch back to 2013 tool sets. Problem is I amenable to convert the CFD-2014 to , to 2013.

 

2. The only solution re-thinking is I need to redraw all huge my geometries to 2013 Inventor and have to bring to 2013 CFD. now. But, that is also not happening.

 

Pls help with appropriate solutions. So that I will go ahed and finish my project simulations in the above situations.

 

Best Regards,

Chandra

Hi, I don't think it's wise to redraw your model. Instead, try exporting it to other file formats from inside Inventor such as .sat (which was pointed out by apollo) and then import the .sat file from inside SimCFD. If you still have problems, it might be related to your geometry. You might want to share your model here so that someone can take a look.

Dear Ilyas and Apolo,
Yes. The *.sat files works fine . I am able to bring in 2013-simCFD from 2014-Inventor. And use my geometries. Many thanks. You have solved my issue. Hundreds of Kudos to you.

Best Regards,
Chandra
