Error in solid element connectivity, the first 4 nodes must be unique

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone


Thanks for reading this topic.


When I submitted a job, I got the error information:
*** Error 20222 (STR +222)

      in solid element connectivity, element 103338

      the first 4 nodes must be unique.


Then I find this element 103338 and check element, there is no problem with its connectivity and duplicates (see the bellowing picture). It is very confusing.


If I delete this element and translate + duplicate an adjacent one and then equivalence nodes, the error will still exist, but in another different element. I don't how many elements has this problem. 

I also tried renumber all, but it is still useless.


I really want to have your suggestions if you are familiar with it. Thanks a lot.

Instead of translating and duplicating the element, can you please try and create a new element from "2D" page "edit element" panel.




Thank you

Thanks for your help. I can create new element use the edit element panel. But the next analysis will still have the error with another element.  I am really confused. I want to find out every element with this problem and correct them all.
