So I have created a spine model in CAESES for my research and was wanting to optimise it using the CAESES Act in ANSYS and have some issues. After I exported the fsc file just like the tutorial on this kinda thing and loaded it up into ANSYS. Got the green ticks in the CAESES box and all my design variables loaded up as parameters. Then I was hoping on transfering the data like in the tutorial but instead of Fluid Flow, putting the model into a Static Structural (SS) system. This created pink links from CAESES Geometry to both engineering data and geometry in the SS box. First an error popped up saying the "Could not determine the format of the data" for the engineering data. I could modify the engineering data to what I needed and loaded the model and created the simulation and got it to do calculations so I thought it was fine. I then wanted to do some Response Surface Optimisation and run a Design of Experiments (DOE) but then for every design points it would reload the engineering data from CAESES and report the same problem - "Could not determine the format of the data" - So I then deleted the pink line from CAESES Geometry to Geometry and it seemed to work fine, ran the simulation and it worked. But when I ran the DOE again, the geometry of the model never seemed to update and I got the same answer for every design point.
Is there something I'm doing wrong or there anything I can do to actually run a DOE for my model?
