I have a problem in regenearting a model in Simulate 2.0 (structural):
in the main window, when I regenerate, the led on the bottom right remains always yellow and if I try to save the model, the message of warning "model has to be regenerated" and "mass properties not calculated" (or something like that, my creo is not in english), which are typical of when the model has the yellow led when you try to save it.
(while, instead, in the parametric the led is green without any problem).
Anyone knows what is it due to?
to set mass properties, you have to click
File > Prepare > Model Propeties > change in Mass Properties row > OK
add the following option into config.pro file
the first way seems not to be working for this problem.
The second, if the Simulate config.pro is the same as the Parametric one, I already have that option inserted (so much so that in parametric I have no problem with the green led).
you are not going to believe this;
try deleting the cross-sections in Creo (Xsec001 in the picture shown).
I've had it as a problem in numerous models.
It can help when you leave simulate, then regenerate and go back in to simulate. The yelllow light should be gone. If so, delete the Xsec's and the problem will not return
thanks for your reply. However, I tried it and it does not work, the same problem still appears.
Anyway, you mean definitely erase all the sections of the part? for me this would be un-actionable since sections are needed to plot the drawing and once they are not present anymore, the drawing will mess up...
I understand, but you have to see that for analysis you often need to change entities of your model in such a way that your drawing will be incorrect anyway.
it is best to check out your part or assembly and save a bckup copy on your local hardtrive (C:\FEM). That way you can make simplifications and design improvements without damaging wat you already have,.
In doing that it is also not a big problem to delete all your sections........
It's not correct (by PTC) but rest assured, I believe the problem to be solved in Creo 3.0.(In Creo 2.0, Simulate did not recognize sections, in Creo 3.0 it does.)
I do not know what are you referring to when you wrote of need to change entities of the model, since it never happened to me to alter the model tree in order to perform calculations...but for sure deleting sections would be quite an invasive intervention, because I have to re-set the section, exculde/include parts, redraw all the custom dimensions...and doing the back up is really time consuming, as we are using Windchill too. (and we are talking about a software whose maintenance is already exageratedly time (and money) consuming...).
Anyway it's not the case since it's not the sections the problem in my case...I hope in 3.0 as you said it will be fixed...
