I am using the latest version 2011.12. When dxf file is imported into EMPro, everything works okay. However, once I started the FEM simulation, the following error occurred. Anyone ever encountered similar error before?
there is a problem with the way the DXF import deals with the geometry modeling units. When importing in mm or in meters there is no problem, but when using micrometers, there is a chance of resolution problems, which cause the errors you see. We are working on a fix for the next EMPro release (2012.05)
In the mean time you can use the following work around:
1. Import the dxf file in meters 2. Run the following python script
fl = empro.activeProject.geometry().flatList(False) for p in fl: p.unit = empro.units.unitByAbbreviation("um")
