Crashing Problem

I am creating a tank with a small cylinder in the center as an obstruction. However, any time I try to add any type of geometric subcomponent (STL, my own geometry files, or the built in geometries), the program crashes.

Has this happened to anyone else? and
Does anyone have any advice about how to fix this?

Thanks for your help!

Seems like you ought to have Flow Science support look at your prepin file. Have you contacted them?

Thanks for the reply! I figured out the problem. Apparently, when my simulation was a copy of another, I couldn't add any structures to the mesh. The system would crash. The simulation worked after I created it from scratch and not from a copy.

Have you deleted the component you'd like to import the STL file in? try to import the STL file into another component. I got similar problem several months ago...
