STL->SolidWorks->IGES->Caedium = Slow
I'm doing analysis of hydrofoils, starting with an .stl, hoping to do RANS CFD analysis.
I can modify stl with SolidWorks to an IGS or STEP file. Importing the .igs with Caedium seems to take forever though. Is this because the program is attempting to volume mesh the igs immediately upon import? Not sure what the quickest method to a usable RANS volume mesh will be; suggestions appreciated.
