Temperature plot in ANSYS Maxwell

There is an option to create a fields report for temperature values in ANSYS Maxwell, but for some reason, all the values in the plot are "nan". How do I resolve this issue with the temperature values?

Thank you in advance.

In Maxwell, temperature plots are available only for objects which:

1) Have temperature dependent materials assigned in material properties (see online help topic: Setting a Thermal Modifier)

2) Have 2-way thermal coupling enabled under Maxwell settings (see online help topic: Setting the Temperature of Objects)

3) Are coupled to an additional thermal solver using Icepak AEDT or Workbench (Icepak classic, ANSYS Thermal or Fluent)

Otherwise, plotting temperature will return "NAN" since there is temperature data available.
