Geometry / mesh import: principles


FLUX software has the ability to communicate with other software packages and to carry out the transfer of data from CAD tools to the Finite Element (FE) analysis tools.

This chapter presents the available choices for the different processes of import with Flux:

  • import of geometry starting from geometric files
  • import of geometry starting from mesh files
  • import “Advanced Mode”

in addition, the associated tools for simplification and repair of imported data are described

Interest (reminder)

The import of a CAD geometry file into FLUX takes into account projects possessing complex geometries (e.g. presenting twisted surfaces). These types of surfaces cannot be generated directly using the available tools in FLUX.
