ERROR - Failed to export NASTRAN file
Authored by Caleb Scharf September 9th, 2022 2329 views 0 likes KB956491
When using Ansys Mechanical 2021R1, exporting to a NASTRAN file fails with the following message:
"Failed to export NASTRAN file. Please refer to the messages for more information."
There is a bug in Ansys 2021R1 that causes this if the customer doesn’t have an Enterprise level license.
- Create a System Environment Variable named "ANSYS211_PRODUCT" and set its value to "mech_1" , if you have a Mechanical Pro license, or "mech_2" if you have a Mechanical Premium License.
