allowable body size in ANSYS Workbench 8.1
 
I try to create the body in ANSYS Workbench 8.1. I create the rectangle in ZX plane with size 1500 m by 80 m. Then I revolve it with 2.5 angle in symmetric direction. However I got the error message "Self intersecting or invalid profiles". I think that the geometry might be larger than the allowable size. Do anyone have an idea how to fix this? Thank you very much for your kind consideration.

This is a Parasolid limit and WB uses the Parasolid functionality withing DM. The limit is 500m or 0.5km, so you need to scale your model in some way.
