heat conduction in solids problem

I am having trouble with a flow simulation for a school senior design project.  Flow simulation is doing exactly what I need so far, but whenever I check the "heat conduction in solids" box under "General Settings" the simulation jumps from 15 minutes to over 24 hours.  Flow Simulation does a great job of showing the fluid flow lines and temperatures around the solids in my model but I need to see the heat gradient inside the solids as well.  Can Solidworks do this?


My goal is to have a heat flux surface plot over a solid that has two different air flows around it.


EDIT:  Uploaded the assembly.
