My office has licenses for Simcenter (SC12500). We use NX 8.5 and NX 12.0.
When I open a new model, associate it with a master part, and create a mesh in 8.5, I'm able to export it to MSC Nastran.
When I do the exact same thing in 12, I get an error that reads: "Nastran export: no license". Has anyone seen this behavior? Did Siemens change that way it licenses the MSC Nastran translator?
only as an idea: Check the licence type in "solver parameters" of simulation. Maybe that's the reason. We had a similar problem and didn't realize, that in one case license type was "Desktop" by default and in another case it was "Enterprise". We have only "Desktop" license so it works only in the first case automatically. After switching to License Type "Desktop" in the second case everything was good.
I hope, it helps. Best wishes, Michael
