Computation Time Is Too Long


The computation time is too long.


  • Increase the Element Size in the Run Analysis window.
  • Select Faster in the Speed/Accuracy settings on the Run Analysis or Run Optimization window.
  • Redefine all contacts to Bonded.
  • Increase the Minimum Thickness Constraint on the Run Optimization window.
  • Reduce the number of Normal Modes to be calculated in the Run Analysis window.
  • Increase the number of cores for parallel computation under File > Preferences > Run Options > Number of CPUs.
  • For optimization runs, increase the mesh size for non-design parts in the Property Editor (deselect Mesh > Autocalculate Element Size, and enter a bigger value).
  • For sheet metal parts, convert them to surfaces using the Midsurface tool.
