create surface in Femap

Dear all,

I am a new user of Femap, I am here asking for help.

When I use (15000,9000,0) (25000,9000,0) (15000,-9000,0) (25000,-9000,0) these four points to create a surface in Femap v10 32-bit, why only the four surface edge lines appear?But the surface actually been created cause when I use delete surface command, it actually been deleted? This really confuse me. Anyone can help?

Hi, 

 

Go to File / Preference / Geometry/Model / Under Geometry Preferences / Solid Geometry Scale Factor / Choose Millimeters (I guess this is the unit you are using) Hit OK and Close Femap (to take into account this preference change).

 

Re-Open Femap and start creating your surface using corners. 

To avoid "Twisted Element or Region" Message you need to invert the creation order of the third ad fourth points.
