Motion Setup – Oscillating Motion Function Not Saving Units

      Hello,

      I am an Ansys Maxwell 2022 R1.2 user. I have been trying to add motion to my band to make a cylindrical magnet inside of it translate back and forth using the function 33.53*cos(36.4*pi*Time), and the units should be in inches_per_sec.  The velocity units never save when I put the function in. Leading to my conclusion that this is where the problem is.  I have selected inches per second multiple times and have ran the simulation, but to no avail, I get the same error:

      "Error in mesh mapping on band. please check the potential problem in band setting. 114"

      I have gone through the process of creating a band (a polyhedron of 150 segments) around my magnet, defining the type as periodic translation, and entering the function in the velocity field multiple times. At this point, I know it is likely something simple I am missing and would very much appreciate any help in fixing this problem.

      Thank you!

      Hi  Bryce,

      Can you share screenshots of your model showing how the band is assigned?

      Regards,

        Hello Navya,

        Below are the screenshots of the band I am using and all the definitions used to assign the band.

        Thank you for your help.

        Best, 

        Bryce

      Hello Bryce,

            Could you run validation check? Please unselect "Periodic" in Type tab of Motion propperties.

        Hello again,

        Here are the results of the validation check.
