I am a newbie (I hope I do not have missed a foundamental step ...) and I am having a problem in running analysis and optimizations.
If the part is a single body, Inspire competes the analysis. If I subdivide the same part in two or more bodies (in order, for example, to define design-space and non-design-spaces), I always get an error window (see attached file), that says that Inspire is “Unable to Run the Model” because it cannot mesh one or more bodies, and suggests to try to decrease the minimum thickness or element size in some of the parts. The loads and constraints are again the same applied on the analysis with a single body.
First, I checked the contacts, and all the portions of the part are bonded.
I then tried reducing these values up to 0.01 mm (a very, very low value for the models), but nothing changed.
Then, I generated a model containing only on of the part that it was unable to mesh (with some “random” load and constraints) and, now, Inspire can mesh (and analyzed) it correctly.
I also tried to run some models from the tutorials (Rear Set Bracket.stmod, for example), but I get the same error.
It seems it is an installation problem, but I do not understand what went wrong.
I am running SolidThinking 2017.1. The problem occurs on a computer with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (build 14393.969), as well as on a computer with Windows 7 Pro. All the drivers of all the computers are up to date.
Looking in the log files I only found this error message message in Progrees.log:
#--------Error: Simlab mesher failed with Error code 1001
MeshErrorCode = 1001
NotMeshedOccParts = Design Space,Non-Design Space
# Error while meshing -
RUN_STATE = 2051 ## Done
# --------------------- END -----------------------
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
