I have simulated the pressure of a wing in SIM CFD.
then I wanted to transmit the pressure results to MECH by the app(SIM CFD TO MECH).
Following message was showed in the output bar.
FEA Transfer ... Started
FEA Transfer ... Process Input Files
FEA Transfer ... Process Input Files: Nodes
FEA Transfer ... Process Input Files: Elements
FEA Transfer ... Process Input Files: Elements Condition
FEA Transfer ... Preliminary Data Processing
FEA Transfer ... Centroid Location
FEA Transfer ... Calculate Centroid Pressure
**** This operation could take some time please be patient ****
Several minutes later, nothing happened. There was no finished message.
I have tried several times.
Can you help me?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We have seen this issue and have logged an enhancement for the app.
This comes down to language preferences for list seperators.
As we try to read the csv files, we are looking for and assuming a comma (,) as the delimiter. In some system settings the semicolon ( is used in stead and as a result the process stops.
Open the csv file with a text editor and verify if you have ; or , as the delimiter between each value.
If you have a ; then you will have to replace all ; with , (Text Editors like Notepad++ have a Find and replace all to avoid manually doing this )
Depending on how large the csv files are and how many nodes that are trying to get mapped this process can take a little bit of time. On some larger models on my laptop I have seen this process take 10-15min.
Thank for your reply.
I have read the .csv file,and there was no ";"
My colleague did the same things, but the APP could work on his computer.
Our system are same.
Now, I am confused.
Now, my computer can't use the APP.
However, my colleague could. I can't find why.
After the APP installed, there is no the APP showed in my Autodesk exchange APP Manager.
What's the problem?
Could you give me a hand?
I have also had the exact same error. I have checked and the nodes file uses commas, and I have rerun the simulation, made the model smaller, even uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Has anybody found a solution to this?
Change your "system language settings format" to english like in the attached image BEFORE exporting the SimMech file.
If you do not change that: even if you replace the semicolons (or whatever is used) manually and the mapping works, you will find later on that the results cannot be re-imported to SimMech.
Thanks for the reply,
I am just wondering because I am a native English speaker and my program runs in English, so that shouldn't be a problem.
I am still having trouble with this, and I am wondering if it is because in CFD I created an extended volume. Does anybody have any knowledge on this?
