SOL 701 - Drilling Model

I am trying to use Femap to simulate a drill cutting a block of material. I created the model (attached) and tried both SOL 601 and SOL 701. SOL 601 works however I am not seeing any deformation. I guess because the timestep is too small.


However, SOL 701 returns an error.


I am not sure what I am doing incorrectly. Any advice from other users will be appreciated.


P.S. For this example I used TET mesh as it is quicker. I will use HEX mesh when I need detailed analysis.
