Cannot update geometry via design points
I believe I have a similar issue to this thread here, though it's not clear if the recommendations there apply to my case. https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/16298/geometry-dont-change-by-solving-different-design-points?
I'm attempting to perform a parameter sweep, modifying the dimensions of a pipe with multiple material layers. I am doing this using driving dimensions in Spaceclaim (see attached image).
I set all of my dimensions row by row in the parameter set dialog. If I set every row to "retain" for every case, then "set current", open up the fluent mesher, manually re-import the geometry and remesh, open fluent, and recalculate, everything works fine. However, if I click "update all design points", or if I just "set current" and update from the workbench, it keeps the geometry of the first design point and I get this error message:
Parameter update incorrect: Attempted = 5.1, Assigned = 4.6, Name = tss1
This only happens with parameters related to the geometry (fluid inlet temperature does not cause this problem). For even a modest parameter sweep, this will take weeks what should be doable overnight, so this workaround is really impractical. Is this a limitation of the student license or am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to force it to re-import the geometry and remesh as part of the run?
