When developing a macro, we encountered a problem in the function feGenerateCopy.
When we apply this function to a set of shell elements with a given material orientation angle, the newly created elements have not a material orientation angle.
If we use the tool Mesh-> Copy-> Element... for the same action, then the material orientation is preserved in the elements.
We developed our version of the function for copying elements.
Dear developers, if it possible, please correct the original API function feGenerateCopy.

What version of FEMAP are you running?
FEMAP 11.4.0 has a newer method: feGenerateCopy2 where the last argument will copy the material direction as well.
