Why is my cyclic symmetry analysis giving thousands of warning messages
of the following type?

Term= 3 on CE number= 17 is not active on any element
This CE is ignored.

Your edge nodes are attached to elements with only translation dof,
but you have a beam in the model with 6 dof. This causes the program
to write cyclic symmetry constraint equations for non-existent rotational dof.
To correct this problem use the CYCOPT command to specify the dof to be used
as shown below.

CYCOPT,DOF,1,UX,UY,UZ ! For pair 1
CYCOPT,DOF,2,UX,UY,UZ ! For pair 2
