Checking the Model

Use the Check tool to search for any missing references in defined entities or errors in properties.

If errors in the model are detected, it is reported in the message window that is displayed when the check is completed. The types of checks that are conducted are specific to entity types. A model check detects errors such as negative mass for a body and negative diameter for a beam.

From the Tools menu, click Check Model.
A message window displays the check status. When the check is complete, the model errors are listed in the message window.
Tip: Filter the message types using the icons on the ride side of the window.
