As we all know, the calculation of nonliear analyse needs more time and there is a good option in nonlinear analyse, that the simulation can be restarted from the last time point. For example i first run a simulation from 0 to 1 second and break it, and then run it again from 1 to 2 second. The simulation runs without any problem in the first 2 seconds, but when i check the results, there is no data from 1 to 2 second. The frames can be chosen in the last second, however, only the results at the time point 1 second is shown. I am using SolidWorks 2011 sp1 and each model i built has the same problem.
The second problem is, when there are a lot frames (500) after a successful run of the simulation, only the first few frames is shown in the animation and then a window apears "the frames cannot be generated". I can only manually choose each frame to see the results.
Maybe someone knows how to avoid these two problems, Thanks a lot!
