Solve of inverse quadratic finite element problem - resend


Would someone with a very fast machine and lots of memory be willing to try 
this Solve for me?
It is the inverse of the 20 node quadratic hexahedral mapping used in 
finite element analysis.
None of my computers can handle this - they run out of memory (using 
Version 4.2).
