Would require the help to translate Simpleware's .IGES file to surfacer to break down into point clouds with optimum number of layers before putting into ANSYS to mesh up using a maximum of 6 keypoints per layer.
IGES will be in parts and required to piece up by adjusting the Y-coordinates in ANSYS into 1 big model.
1) I must be able to adjust the number of elements using the global mesh controls finally.
2) Final model must also be as close to the original IGES surface geometry as possible.
Surfacer need not be used and the procedure can be skipped if all the above can be done in ANSYS alone.
50% completion to be done in 1 month's time and another in 2 months.
