Hi everyone, I'm trying to run a direct optimisation for a composite structure using the ACP Prepost and Static Structural Analysis modules. I have many input parameters for ply angles and number of layers, with the optimisation goals to minimise weight, deformation and ply failure index. However, I'm getting an error when I try to run my optimisation that I can't solve. An example of this error message reads:
(DP 0) An unexpected error occurred during tidy-up after updating design points: Data entity not found: /Model 2/SimulationModelGeneratedPMDB:SimulationModelGeneratedPMDB
Does anyone have any idea what this is/how to fix it?

are you using Design Explorer or Ansys optiSLang for the optimization?
Does all design fail or only a few of them?

I am using Direct Optimisation in Design Explorer. Unfortunately optiSLang isn't working for me. Whenever I try to drag and drop optiSLang onto my project, it appears to buffer for a second and then nothing happens.
As for your second question, the optimisation fails immediately on the first design point and terminates the optimisation process.

regarding optiSLang: Which version Ansys Workbench and optiSLang Version are you working with? And did you checked, if you have a license available?
regarding Direct Optimisation in Design Explorer:
Then your porcess does not seem to work properly. Did you try to set up a couple of designs in the "Table of Design Points" and execute them manually? I would work here first before staring the optimization. You an "Retain" data and see if errors appear. If yes, you can go the the DP and have a closer look to the problem.
