3D CAD import
« on: May 18, 2016, 11:32:27 pm »

Hi
I've imported 3D CAD to pyrosim but there no option to change wall thickness or height.
Entites type in autocad is 3d solid.
Any ideas?


Thanks,
Alina

Alina,

When PyroSim imports objects from CAD files, it imports them either as lines (for 2D CAD) or collections of triangles (for 3D CAD).  PyroSim does not convert any imported object into a high-level object type, such as a wall or slab.  Because of this, there is no way to set a wall thickness or height on the imported objects. You can, however, move or scale the objects.

Hi
Thanks for your answer! But I will still be able to run a simulation properly right?
