The theory of rotordynamics is based on bodies of revolution with properties that don't change in the circumferential direction. It's not clear that your layered shaft satisfies that requirement. Be that as it may, it's clear from the message that the coriolis command does not support layered elements. A possible workaround is to create a superelement (matrix50) out of the layered shaft and perform the analysis on the superelement.n
