Failed Mesh for RVE

Hello all, 

I am attempting to create an RVE for a particulate phased composite with spherical reinforcements in ANSYS 19.2 Material Designer. However, I am unable to generate a mesh for this object. I'm not sure why considering the fact that a mesh can be generated for this same geometry in other analysis systems in work bench. Any and all information would be appreciated! 

Attached is a zip with all the necessary files for ANSYS 19.2 .

Hi all,

After further inspection I was able to determine that the meshing module requires a defined axis in order to mesh correctly. Now all aspects of Material Designer can be completed with the exception of Analysis.

Regardless of the type of analysis procedure chosen, the output is consistently: "DS Solver Proxy Failed, failure code: 516"

If anyone has any information on how to approach this issue it would be greatly appreciated!
