To import a surface to ANSYS in the Design Modeler, you will first need to create just the surface using a CAD program, such as Solidworks. Note that these instructions also apply to importing any part or assembly from Solidworks to ANSYS; you just need to skip the step  in Solidworks on adding Surfaces.

Method I

In Solidworks:

  • Right-click on the Features toolbar and add Surfaces if it is not already shown

  • Choose the type of surface you would like to create (extruded, revolved etc.)
  • Create your desired surface
  • Save the surface as a .STP file
