Hi, I am running SW2008 with CosmosWorks Professional. I was
able to analyze an engine stand weldment yesterday but after
plating was added to the top I am getting an error, "The Restraint
- Restraint1 Failded to Transfer." Cosmos then tries to analyze the
weldment but comes up with this error: "2
Preconditioner_Fails_To_Factor. May not have sufficient
restraints." I have tried different restraints but I keep getting
this same error. Can anyone shed insight on this?
When I have encountered a "Restraint Failed to Transfer"
error, I have been able to resolve it by Updating All Components
(richt-click study header) and then remeshing. If COSMOSworks isn't
registering that restraint, and your model isn't otherwise
restrained against rigid body motion, it will lead to your second
error about insufficient restraints.
