Hi i am very new to femap and trying to import surface IGES file from Rheno software.

But while assigning plate property to surfaces its giving warning that solid element type property must be selected.

 

Will appreciate if someone can resolve this and tell me the order in which rhino file must be importes and assigned the property.

Make sure you're assigning the property with Mesh -> Mesh Control -> Approach on Surface, and not Approach on Solid.  In Parasolid terms, surfaces are "Sheet" solids, so one can pick them with the Approach on Solid command, and FEMAP would then be looking for a solid property not a shell property.
