I have a weldment

for which SWX calculates the joints okay, meshes okay, but fails when tested.

I tried doing a Frequency Test after watching a video on checking weldment joints but my computer can't count

I have visually checked the joints and they all seem to be mated properly.  I am really at a loss.  Could it be a problem with the Profile Locations?  Most of the members are not aligned with the longitudnal (is that the neutral) axis.

 

Can someone tell me why the tests fail, or perhaps give me some keywords or point me at a tutorial on solving this problem.

Thanks.
