Diagnostic Tools

A set of diagnostic tools helps you identify issues with a study’s setup before you run a simulation.

To access the Diagnostic tools:

From the Simulation CommandManager, click Diagnostic Tools .

Diagnostic Tool Description
Underconstrained Bodies Detects the bodies of a part or assembly that are not sufficiently constrained during a simulation and can exhibit rigid body modes.
Simulation Evaluator Inspects a study's setup to determine if the setup is optimal for a successful simulation.
Interaction Viewer Calculates all areas with interaction definitions between the selected components and renders them with a unique color according to the interaction type.
Mesh Failure Diagnostics Identifies geometry entities that failed to mesh and helps you resolve issues with solid mesh.
Mesh Quality Diagnostics Identifies poor-quality mesh elements based on a defined criterion.
