My model consists only of SOLID45's and multilayered SHELL181's. I get the following error:

*** ERROR ***
Error getting coordinate system from structure for ANSYS coordinate systems.

What causes this error, and what can I do about it?

This model was created by IDEAS ms10, which created the shell elements with a nonexistient ESYS. You can write out the cdb file, modify it, and read back in to fix the ESYS problems.

I-DEAS seems to be exporting for an older version of ANSYS, which appears to be the cause of a number of bugs.
