lape95 is on a distinguished road

First of all, sorry for my poor English.

Im doing this tutorial from Cornell University webpage and i have some problems generating the mesh.

After creating the body sizing, i click "Generate Meshing" and my PC starts to slow down and i have to turn off the PC because it dosnt respond.
After turning on the PC I went back to doing this tutorial and I had the same problem. I dont know what is happening because the mesh is so simple.
I have student version 18.2. Do you know what may be happening?

I did the previous tutorials from this website and I did not have any problems.

And another thing, what is the difference between "face sizing" and "body sizing"? Why i have to create a body sizing in this tutorial?

Thank you!

siw will become famous soon enough
Face sizing is applied/scoped to a 2-D face of a 3-D body. Body sizing is applied/scoped to a 3-D body (or a 2-D body if conducting a 2-D analysis).

Mesh attached made in R18.2. Took a few minutes to make geometry and mesh.
