Model Saving Issues

    • shane

      I am wondering if anyone here has had saving issues after upgrading to 2023-r1 or newer. When I am saving an assembly with nested models, it fails because "the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process". My current work around is to go through and save every part individually, working up the nested assemblies until I can save the whole assembly. Before the update, it would save all the individual parts as I saved the assembly. Is there a setting I can change to allow saving assemblies, or is it a bigger issue than that? Don't know if this is relevant information, but I am saving to a folder that is backed up on dropbox, and this issues only happens about half of the time. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advanced!

      Hello Shane,

      You can try internalizing all the copmonents within your assembly and then try saving. For more information please refer Internal and External Components (ansys.com)

      If you would like to internalize all external components in your assembly, right click on the topmost assembly, go to Source and select "Internalize All" option. See below image.

      Let me know if this helps.
