I am a new user to Solid Edge student edition and I have been attempting to do some simulations for work at University but I keep encountering the same problem no matter how simple or complex the part geometry is. For the purposes of receiving aid I reverted to using the tutorial model (the micrometer) to see if I got the same error and I did:
Dear Iain, Run the analysis again and go to the SCRATCH directory of SIMULATION in your computer (open an MS-DOS window and write SET and you will see there the value of variable TEMP, like TEMP=C:\Temp). In my system the address is C:\Temp\SESimulation\Scratch. Go there with the WINDOWS EXPLORER and you will see the following files: C:\Temp\SESimulation\Scratch>dir Directorio de C:\Temp\SESimulation\Scratch 17/06/2012 12:21 2,031 SENASTRANStressTet.RCF 15/04/2013 22:29 3,459,539 SESimulation.dat 15/04/2013 22:29 24,934 sesimulation.f04 15/04/2013 22:29 26,942 sesimulation.f06 15/04/2013 22:29 6,112 sesimulation.log 15/04/2013 22:29 13,169,600 sesimulation.op2 Open (or upload here to the Forum) the ASCII files "sesimulation.log" and "sesimulation.f06", any error related with the NX NASTRAN solver is written in the *.F06 file, ok?. Best regards, Blas.
