The ANSYS DesignModeler application is designed to be used as a geometry editor of existing CAD models. The ANSYS DesignModeler application is a parametric feature-based solid modeler designed so that you can intuitively and quickly begin drawing 2D sketches, modeling 3D parts, or uploading 3D CAD models for engineering analysis preprocessing.

If you have never used a parametric solid modeler, you will find the ANSYS DesignModeler application easy to learn and use. If you are an experienced user in parametric modeling, the ANSYS DesignModeler application offers you the functionality and power you need to convert 2D sketches of lines, arcs, and splines into 3D models.

In this tutorial we will use tools that we have learned in previous tutorials. First we will import a geometry from Autodesk Inventor and then we will use Slice and the Freeze and unfreeze tools.

The Thin/Surface feature allows you to convert solids into thin solids or surfaces. The feature can operate on both active and frozen bodies. Typically, you will select the faces to remove, and then specify a face offset that is greater than or equal to zero (>=0).

Some import types (ACIS and AutoCAD) allow you to specify the units of the imported model. Before clicking Generate, you may be able to change the model units from the Details View, depending on the type of import. Note that some model types store their units, so no Model Units property will appear when importing them.

The Connect feature may be used to align and possibly join a set of vertices, edges or faces. The alignment takes the form of a stretching and aligning of existing geometry.
