Limits of academic licenses

      Hi,

      does anyone knows the limitations imposed on mechanical academic licenses? We have a student who got an error that the "valid geometric limitations are exceeded" and that saving and export is no longer possible. We use the software in german so this message is just a rough translation into english.

      When assigning the student a normal commercial license everything works fine. Since we don't know the limitations of the academic licenses we don't know how to avoid this message.

      If someone can tell or has a link to an Ansys page with this information it would be appreciated.

      Thank you!

      There's a cell limit on Student and Teaching keys. The Student key is summarised here https://www.ansys.com/academic/students/ansys-student and I think Teaching is at around the same level. Research and Commercial keys don't have the limits.

      Hi Rob thanks for your answer. I'm not sure if we have student licenses. In the license file it is called "ANSYS Academic Research Mechanical". Does this map to the Research keys you mentioned?

      That should be a Research key and not have limits. Can you check the Student's calling that and not Teaching? That's in the licence manager somewhere.

      We only have "normal/commercial" and "Academic Research" licenses. No Student and Teaching licenses.
      Alright then, thank you very much. I think we get back to the Ansys Support with this error :-D
