FloEFD error with solution: Some of the components that were disable are lost

FloEFD error with solution: Some of the components that were disable are lost

FloEFD error with solution: Some of the components that were disable are lost

Recently we encountered the following error statement from FloEFD (SolidWorks Flow) which prevent the simulation to start run.

"Some of the components that were disable are lost"

This error statement showed up after we have modified the CAD model and upon the 'run' command.

We know it is due to boundary condition setting issue and could not identify the problem boundary condition.

Suppressing and deleting all boundary condition does not eliminate the error statement also.

The following is the solution we found.

Step 1: [Flow Analysis] --> [Tools] --> [Check Geometry]
Step 2: Click [Apply to Project]
Step 3: Click [Check]
Step 4: Exit [Check Geometry]
Step 5: [Flow Analysis] --> [Project] --> [Rebuild]
Step 6: [Flow Analysis] --> [Solve] --> [Run]
Step 7: Run will be prevented and the problem boundary condition will show up (simply enter edit the boundary condition and click on the 'tick' to exit)
(Step 7 may need to be repeated a few times if there are more than 1 problem boundary condition)

Hope this help.

Dear Keagan,
You need to open COMPONENT CONTROL and deactivate and activate any component, finally make sure to click in APPLY button, and next click OK, this will update the model.
Next issue REBUILD and you are done.
