I am trying to simulate a 100N axial force at three locations on an assembly. Every time I try to run the solver, an error is encountered while the program is solving contact constraints. The error message states:
The Iterative Solver stopped.
Status code:8 FILE_ERROR
No result saved.
Any idea why I might be seeing this error, and what I should do differently?
This solver error indicates a problem writing data, either to the location where temporary solver data is being saved or the actual result location. Please see S-018609 in the KB - it applies to both SolidWorks Simulation and COSMOSM (GeoSTAR).
