Simulation error

I ran a basic stress analysis by fixing 4 points and applying 6 loads to surfaces. I ran this one 3 models, all identical except two crossmembers replaced with different shapes/styles. The first two ran without issue (gave some thin part warnings but no big deal) but the third one will not run, it stops with the error:


Internal Error # ps_1


No other information is given. Does ANYONE know what the heck that error means? Thanks.


P.S. This is simulation in Inventor, NOT Simulation 360.

I have a client that is having this same issue. Anyone know what it is?

Did you ever find out what the Internal Error #ps_1 means?



WHY do people do stuff like this.



"Error 134" almost killed a MAN, when it showed up on a Medtronic Pacemaker, 15 years ago. It mean the ON Switch and the Boot Up switch on the external pacemaker had been pushed at the same time. CURE: Dump the battery, put back in.



After that one happened, the FDA looked at ERROR CODES and told the industry: NO MORE ERROR CODES HIDDEN RANDOMLY IN 600 PAGE OPERATING MANUALS! A clear index, always...


Alas, no one DIES directly from this sort of thing!

I have no idea.  Maybe the same reason people post questions without any data that illustrates the behavior they are seeing and expect logical answers plucked from thin air.

Would you mind to add the model in this topic? And you can check the displacement with Actual(in Display). Maybe, the displacement is too big and the results are error. Thanks.
