can you give us some more info on exactly what you are trying to do? is it a static problem/ dynamic problem? structure/thermal?


have you set up your contact regions? are the loading and constraint conditions set up correctly?


let me know and I'll see what I can do!

sorry for the late reply.. net was down at home over the weekend! :(


I can remember the errors I normally get but they are usually due to an unconstrained model.. double and triple check your constraints just to be sure.. from what you described to me earlier, if it's still a 3D problem make sure that you have looked at the "Z" axis also!
