ETABS "Error in Checking Model"

ETABS "Error in Checking Model"

ETABS "Error in Checking Model"

Need some guidance when it comes to debugging a model. When I use the "Check Model" feature ("Analyze">"Check Model"), I get a warning that reads "Error in Checking Model". However, the next dialogue box says "Model has been checked. No warning messages were generated. Model" The model also runs and doesn't give any warnings for Dead and Modal load cases. I've tried all the tricks I know for chasing out errors but nothing seems to work. Any ideas as to what's going on here? Cheers!

RE: ETABS "Error in Checking Model"

Never seen that error before, but if the the model does solve, are you sure it doesn't report an ill-conditioned error right at the top of the last analysis log?

Have you tried using the standard solver, it reports locations of issues which you can then go and find and correct.

Lastly, it could simply be an error in the program, report it to your local CSI rep and see if they can replicate it?
