Solver Pivot Error applying force on spiral design in WorkbenchStaticStructural

    • Sneh Patel


      I have a spiral design in the Workbench Static Structural Mechanical model which I want to deform the spiral geometry by applying force and save the deformed geometry as a separate file for further analysis in HFSS. When I apply the force (in red) on the top face with the side 4 faces fixed support (in blue), it gives me a solver pivot error. I have attached pictures below.

      I would really appreciate your help with this.

      Thank you,

      Hi Sneh,

      Your model looks properly constrained and it does not have any contact, so that should not be the issue. You have warning related to meshing, it might be because of single elment across the thickness. Can you try remeshing the part with finer mesh and see if your issue gets solved?
