I imported a MEMS waveguide structure from Solidworks. After performing the healing, as shown by the HFSS guide, along with analyzing inter-object misalignment and mesh to make sure there aren't any errors, I assigned boundary conditions and excitations and proceeded to set up a driven solution setup in GHz and a frequency sweep. I validated my project to make sure there aren't any discrepancies in my structure and continued on to analyzed the structure. After the third convergence, midway into the fourth, I get an error stating, "Matrix solver exception: out of disk space". I went over several online forums, stating that this can be remedied by making a coarser mesh, lowering the solution frequency and decreasing the accuracy of the solution. I attempted all three, however, my problem still persists. How can I fix this? I have added my project file for reference.

I tried to attach HFSS file but it says the extension is not allowed

My computer has 8GB of RAM and during processing it uses nearly all of it before giving error

Can you run a very simple case with far fewer nodes? It sounds like you're out of disc or RAM on your hardware.

Thank you for getting back to me Rwoolhou, how do I assign fewer nodes?

As you can see 8G of RAM is not enough to simulate your model. As already mentioned try and access a computer with more memory. I have 32G of RAM and can run pretty sizeable models. HFSS likes memory.

Use less control points/mesh: I don't use HFSS so I'm not sure on the exact terms or mechanics.
