  1. Hi, Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately this resulted in the shell elements geting "absorbed" into the 3D elements of the solid (see Image with masked elems). Since they both have to be of different materials, this woudn't work out. Any ideas? Regards
  2. Hello, I have a 2D surface meshed using tria-shell elements (Img 1) which I would like to use as a reference and mesh it onto the solid object (Img 2). Presently I need to define equivalence between both components which results in element distortion due mis-matched element's position and size. How can I use the shell elements of the surface component to "project/map" 3D elements in to the solid component? The solid component was created using the base surface and 3 addition surfaces as bounding surface. Regards
  3. Hello, I'm trying to use a nonlinear material (MATS1) in topology optimization which is resulting in the following error: *** ERROR # 4650 *** The design space for topology/freesize optimization can not contain nonlinear material. --- Is there any way to use a nonlinear material in topology optimization or is it currently not supported? I'm using HyperWorks 2017.2 with the following hotfixes: HyperWorks Desktop 2017.2.1 HyperWorks Solver 2017.2.2 Thanks in advance Manmit
