Hello, From what you describe (some runs take a few minutes and others weeks) this is very likely that the simulation is stuck. This can be for several reasons... Could you provide more information on this (Failure rate ? Do you have a magnetic field ? Geometry (a single block of ice , or more complex ? ?)
