I did my homework and couldn't find this anywhere:
I have an imported model consisting of just rods, bars, and plates. A modal analysis gives the correct results.
But I can't get a simple weight or mass total in Femap. The mass measure Solids selection is greyed out. The mass measure Meshed doesn't select anything.
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you try the command Tools > Mass Properties > Mesh Properties ?
You got another beer Chip! I didn't want a list of every element, just the total, so I didn't check "List every element" under the Mesh option. If I check that, I get a total.
