Endtime has been increased further than the last loadstep endtime (0.10000E+00).

I set up my problem in workbench using explicit dynamics. I used mechanical to mesh and set the analysis end time to 0.0001 s. When I run my model in autodyn I get the following error:

"Endtime has been increased further than the last loadstep endtime    (0.10000E+00). The settings of the last loadstep will remain"

My settings in Autodyn are...

Wrapup Criteria:

Cyle limit: 10000

Time limit: 1.0

Energy: 0.05

Energy ref cycle: 999999

Save times:

Start time: 0.0

End time: 1.0

Increment: 0.001

All in milliseconds.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

    For end time, did you put 1? what time limit means? Do you mean end time? if you put 1 in End time, it would mean 1 sec.

    I have selected my units in Autodyn to be in milliseconds, so I thought that these criteria would automatically be in milliseconds?

    As far as I'm aware, the time limit means that if the simulation exceeds this time, it will terminate.
