I'm currently using Solidworks 2017, Workbench 17.2 and Maxwell 2016 on a research license.
I have a parallel plate style capacitor that was done in SW 2017. I've used a global variable to adjust the dimensions of my top and bottom plates simultaneously.
After importing the geometry into DM and generating the model, I can see the global variables and I am able to export them to Workbench as input paramters to use them in a parameteric analysis to determine the change in capacitance with the electrode dimensions. I'm also able to connect this to Maxwell, set up my simulation conditons and export output parameters (capacitance matrix) to the WB.
The issue that I'm seeing with my parametric analysis is that only DP1 updates and all remaining design points seem to show the same solution. I've noticed that the geometry in Maxwell does not refresh/update after the first design point and the following error shows up in Maxwell
[error] Link parameter 'P3@DS_SQ' in source system 'Geom' is mapped to constant '1' in target system. Map the link parameter to a design variable or project variable in the target system to enable synchronization. (4:09:29 PM Aug 15, 2018)
I'm not really sure how to go about debugging this or solving it and would appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance!
