I'm having the same problem with a simple brass piece. It worked fine yesterday, now it won't. Here is a screenshot of a VERY simple simulation. The error message simply says "Part1-SimulationXpress Study: Failed". I'm running Win 7 64 bit, SW 2010 SP 3.1. Process Explorer shows only 2.1 GB of memory in use (total is 6GB), and the quad core CPU is less than 10% in use.
I've tried increasing and decreasing the mesh resolution, but neither has worked. The par meshes just fine, but the simulation hangs when calculation reaches about 30% the first time it's run. Any further attempt to run the simulation causes it to fail immediately.
I recommend this thread be retagged "SimulationXpress Study: Failed" so that it comes up in searches more often. I had a hard time finding this thread.
i am using solidworks 2010 Sp 3.1 Windows Xp 2002 version.
i am not getting any errors & able to solve the problems in simulation Xpress, i hope may be issues with windows7.
