I don't know about viewfactor, but many ANSYS analyses requires large amounts of free disk space while the solver is running. Large being hundreds of GB.
I recommend you install a second SSD of at least 512GB that is labeled SCRATCH, which is not used to store anything but the current analysis job.

Open stand-alone SpaceClaim, then click on File -> SpaceClaim Options -> Advanced -> Renderer. This is default to Direct3D11, you can try changing to others and see if any of them helps. Make sure you close and restart SpaceClaim after applying the change.
Also, try updating your graphics driver.
I've done this using a mix of IF statements, sin(t) and floor https://www.programiz.com/cpp-programming/library-function/cmath/floor I'll leave you to work out the maths!
Thank you so much for bringing this to our notice. We have fixed the issue and if you download the zipped folder again, it should include the xml file with all the material data. Then you can import the engineering data and there would be no need to define those materials manually.
Thank you again! Hope you enjoy the course and find it useful!
The CFD solvers work to double precision, although 75microns is still quite narrow for those. I've done this in Fluent Meshing, but the method is more advanced than I'm allowed to discuss on here. However I can hint, and it involves creative use of the inflation tools.
Extrude the Face from the upper solid so that it interferes with the lower solid, then use Boolean Subtract.
