I am trying to make a COOL (FEM) analysis in a project in which I have already made a Fill + Pack + Warp analysis. I have configured the cooling system and the mold block.
But when I launch the 3D mold mesh, it stucks and does not converge. I have read the log and it says this:
Copyright Autodesk, Inc. All rights reserved. (C)2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Portions of this software are covered by U.S. Patent Numbers 5,287,408 and 6,096,088. Version: ami2014-cerium_compile_windows-x64 (Build 13213-374) 64-bit build ***** Mesh with the following settings: External mold surface edge length: 0.0000 mm Internal mold surface edge length: 0.0000 mm Target number of nodes on circumferences of cylinders: 12 Generating mold surface mesh Percent 20 done .... Percent 40 done .... Analysis aborted by user ...
I put the edge lengths to 30 and 12 mm, but in the log file they seem to be zero values and I worry if this could be the problem. I have tried several times with different values, restarted MF... but in vane.
Could this be the reason for the non convergence?
Solved! Go to Solution.
this is proabaly related to a non-English operating system that uses a comma as the decimal separator.
Please, update to:
Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Synergy 2014 Service Pack 2
Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight 2014 Service Pack 2 (Solvers)
To service pack 2, the 'Create Mold Block' function works as expected, when applied to a freshly meshed,
imported CAD model on a non-English operating system that uses a comma as the decimal separator.
Or another workaround: Change your locale to En-US.
Hope this helps.
