I have a question about using inventor for FEA analysis in inventor on an imported SolidWorks file. I have successfuly imported the files, thanks to this forum. But I am now having trouble creating a good mesh on an assembly. The largest part of the assembly gets an error "mesh failed: body failure:file name". I have attached a snip of the aftermath of the "mesh view".
I was wondering if anyone knew the most likley culprit for this kind of problem. Thank you in advance.
I have successfuly imported the files,
What are you using as the definition of "successfuly imported"?
Did the parts pass quality check (green checkmarks in browser)?
Can you do the FEA on individual parts rather than assembly?
Can you attach the assembly here?
I am fairly new to cross-platform drawing. I suppose I assumed it imported successfully because I could fully manipulate it, unlike my first time.
I am currently working on redrawing the supplied parts in one drawing to see if that fixes it.
Due to the nature of my project, I am not alowed to upload the files, sry.
There is probably a way to easily fix the imported geometry such that it passes quality check.
