    Submit Cosmos run outside solidworks?

    Henry Belch
      I am running some analyses which run for over 2 days on a Dual XEON 64 bit, Win XP-64 machine, 8 GB RAM, blah... blah... blah...

      This ties up my SW license (and pretty much entire workstation) for the entire time. I use 2 workstations (one Solidworks, one unix Nastran & Marc) and a laptop for e-mail, research, general office, project planning and presentations etc...

      Is there a way to execute a Cosmos Run outside of the Solidworks interface?

      Say for instance - RUN: c:/cosmos.exe/"filename",{parameter list},{output file}

      I could be much more productive if this is possible.

      Thanks in advance.

          Henry,

          This is why some folks choose something like Cosmos DesignStar - it runs separately from your CAD session and therefore doesn't tie up your seat of SolidWorks while running an analysis. There is a downside to completely being integrated with your CAD product. I don't have any suggestions for your current situation other than to complain to SolidWorks. This has been mentioned before. We'll see if they have made any improvements for 2009.
