  1. Here is the fix for the "Units xml file not found" problem if anyone encounters; Seems like there is a certain bug in Ansys only observed on certain machines after installing a new ANSYS version; Please go to the folder; C:\Users\ <user name> \AppData\Roaming\Ansys\ <ANSYS version> \UnitSystems in my case the ANSYS version was v212 There you have to modify the file Ans.Units.config Please search for the entry; <UnitSystem Name="CAESES_units" DisplayName="CAESES units" BaseUnitSystem="SI" FileNamePath="C:\Users\erdem\AppData\Roaming\Ansys\v212\UnitSystems\UnitSystem_CAESES_units.xml" IsSuppressed="false" /> and delete it. Afterwards please save the file. You have to perform this once. Due to a bug this issue is creating a problem, when a new ANSYS version is installed. Afterwards CAESES_Workbench_App should be working just fine
  2. Hi Gabriel, ANSYS DesignModeler can be quite picky sometimes. I believe there exists some degenerated faces causing the issue. Maybe you can let me know when you may have some time for a quick web-meeting, so that I can give a look to the geometry. To be honest, there is no magical command that would pin point the problematic location. What you can do is, to check each operation one by one and keeping an eye on the BRep warning icon. Most probably the operation where the warning icon appears, is the cause of the problem and we should be looking around that area. Please send an email to erdem@friendship-systems.com specifying your availability. Preferably after 1pm CET. Cheers Ceyhan
  3. Hi Gabriel, Your export geometry already seems to be having some issues which is the cause of you not having a water-tight geometry in DesignModeler. The exclamation mark by the BRep icon may give you the hint. Can you please check if you have unconnected edges as well? The command < my BRep > .getNumberofOpenEdges() would let you know whether you have connectivity issues or not. I will recommend you to revise your problematic geometries. After having checked the geometry if you still keep having the problem, please get in touch, so that we can arrange a quick web-meeting to fix the issue. Cheers Ceyhan
  4. Hi Armagan, I will suggest you to go over the "CAESES Geo Engine for ANSYS Workbench" tutorial carefully. I believe you have not deactivated the "Use SpaceClaim color tones when importing" option. You can find the above mentioned option in SpaceClaim; SpaceClaim Options >File Options > General > Import Options Cheers Ceyhan
  5. Hi Farzan, Two issues that I have figured; 1) For the blade creation at; |05_joint|04_1_blade operation #2; please use "add sources" instead of a "Union" Boolean Operation. Boolean operations are for water-tight geometries. 2) During the tip fillet creation; I can see that the created surface using FiletSurface already does have some problems. Please revise the tip creation, maybe use some guides and a LoftedSurface with derivative control instead of a "FilletSurface" Please let me know if you need further assistance. Cheers Ceyhan
  6. Hi Farzan, Then I suspect there may be some existing problems on the blades you are using for the "Solid From Intersections" operation. If not confidential, please send the model you have created to erdem@friendship-systems.com so that I can give a look and try to figure out the problems. Cheers Ceyhan
  7. Hi Farzan, The operation "Solid From Intersections" tries to obtain a solid "water-tight" geometry from the combination of several provided geometries. The reason why the operation provided some unsatisfactory result maybe due to your provided inputs were not much intersecting but flush maybe? From the pictures it is not quite clear but is there even some fillet? I will recommend you to extend the blade geometries a bit so that there can be a proper intersection among the geometries and create the fillet afterwards as a separate operation. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Cheers Ceyhan
  8. Hi Armagan, This is strange. I will suggest to have a web-meeting to recreate the issue. Please email to erdem@friendship-systems when you may be available on the next days. I will try to fit my schedule. Cheers Ceyhan
  9. Hi Armagan, This is interesting. Normally you shouldn't have had any problems. Can you please delete the 3rd line in the fsc file and give a try again? "// Project Units millimeters" Meanwhile I will be looking into the code to figure out the issue. Cheers Ceyhan
  10. Hi Armagan, Can you please let me know which ANSYS version you are using? I suspect the version you are intending to use is not compatible with the current ACT version. Cheers Ceyhan
  11. Hi Armagan, Sorry for the late respond. Please check the feature definition you use for the "Curve Engine" definition. The feature definition called "ProfileRead" serves only to read a point cloud and provide you an interpolation curve as a result. You are not changing anything afterwards. With respect to the code you are trying to create a surface out of a set of multiple profiles located at the same location. Although you have arguments like camber, camber position, pitch and path, it seems like you are using none. I highly recommend you to check the basic CAESES tutorials with regards to Meta Surface creation and Curve Engine. Cheers Ceyhan
  12. Hi Gabriel, Maybe using fv_all() command would be a better alternative. Please check the picture below; Basically, the fv_all command provides an objectlist. MyCurve.fv_all(0,myPoint:x) The command is applied to a curve. The first argument "0" refers to x-axis The second argument refers to the value on the selected axis. So result will be a list of points that have the same coordinate component value in the referred axis. As seen on the picture above, the curve would have two locations with the same x-coordinate value. Using "at(1)" I pick the second item within the objectlist (0 would be used to pick the first one). And finally I cast the entity to a FVector3 type object. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Cheers Ceyhan
  13. Hi Caramon0, Can you please provide me more details? Are you using the CAESES Workbench App? Maybe some pictures would be helpful as well. Cheers Ceyhan
  14. Hi Armagan, I will strongly suggest you to upgrade CAESES to 4.4.2 or 5.0.5. Please find attached the updated CAESES Workbench App, which is included in CAESES5 installation. Yes, you should be able to use your current CAESES version however. Cheers Ceyhan CAESES_Workbench_App.wbex
  15. Hi Armagan, In contrary to DesignModeler, while using the current version of CAESES Workbench App, it is not possible to keep the record of the user performed actions in SpaceClaim. However I can suggest two workarounds. Either you can use DesignModeler or you can create your own SpaceClaim script and provide it to CAESES Geo Engine. Please check the attached picture. Please be sure that you are using the latest version of CAESES Workbench App that is included inside CAESES binary. <CAESES5 installation Dir>/etc/ansys/ Please let me know this resolves your problem. Cheers Ceyhan
