Using an STL File as the Mesh for Analysis in Insight

I am having difficulty creating a mesh for parts in Insight that have a low maximum Aspect Ratio, while remaining an accurate representation of the part geometry.  Some parts imported have too many radii and specific geometry to remove before meshing in Insight.


I can create a better mesh of a part by creating an STL in MagicsSTL 4.0, but the part has to be meshed again before analysis in Insight.  Is there a way to use the STL mesh in the Insight analysis?


Thanks in advance.

There is a back-door mechanism to enable this workflow (this is however, an unsupported workflow formally). If you contact your support representative, they may be able to provide you details on how this could be done.
