NX Nastran Not Running

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello,

 

I was recently moved to a new machine at work. When I tried running a simulation, the FEA program did not run.

Attached is the error I am given. It says, "Although no NX Nastran fatal errors were detected, no results were created.
Please review the NX Nastran logs for information on the cause of this problem." When I look to the logs, all three are empty (log, f04, f06).

Interestingly enough, when I run a study created on another laptop, that study will run just fine. If I edit the study, it will revert to display the previous analysis and disregard the changes.

I checked the licenses between my old computer and the new one, but everything seemed in order.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try launch batch cases on NX Nastran

run cmd as an administrator

 

For example - such as my file paths

C:\>PLM\NX11\NXNASTRAN\bin\nastran64.exe C:\NXTEMP\trubka_sim1-solution_1.dat mem=200000000 parallel=4

 

Of course you can add additional commandline options (e.g. mem=..., parallel=...). The list of available Nastran commandline Options can be found in the documentation or by starting Nastran with the commandline option "help all".

 

*.F04 *.F06 *.log *.op2 - you ca see in the root

 

For example - C:\>trubka_sim1-solution_1.log

 

Do you see anything?

This is what pops up. Looking through the files that were created, the only one I can see as problematic is the .f06 file. Here's the part that seems problematic.
