Recover a mechanical model, if the mechdb file has been corrupted

      Maybe. You can try the following approach. 1. Copy the mechdb file that is stored in dp0/global/mech 2. Change its extension from .mechdb to .mechdat 3. Open Workbench and import the mechdat file

      In my work bench, it has thermal steady state and linked to static structural. Thermal anlsyis is solved on workstation and static structural solved on cluster. suddendly my .mechdb file got corrupted and size of it also reduced.

      Now I have files .rdb files, .dat files, etc corresponding to static structural analysis which was generated while solving on cluster. Can I use any one of the file to recover .mechdb file (which got corrupted and located in "dp0\global\MECH" folder)?
