    Can't run FEA due to parts having "zero volume". How can this be quickly fixed without going through every part?

      I am trying to run finite element analysis in ANSYS with a structure that was imported from NX to SolidWorks. The structure works in SolidWorks, but when I try to import it into ANSYS, the parts won't mesh due to some parts having zero volume geometry. I can't tell which parts have "zero volume" without going through and individually running FEA on each part, which will take a lifetime to finish. It's very interesting that parts with very specifically engineered geometries will show up as having no volume after import. Is there a quick way to reassign the correct volume to parts?
