Change element type from quadratic to linear in assembly fem

Hello,

 

does anybody know if it is possible in NX in an assembly fem or also in a simple fem to change all quadratic elements defined to linear elements and also vice verca?

 

Or is the only possibility to do it manually for each mesh entry?

 

Thank you and regards,

 

Georg

The input for Edit, Element, Modify Order is a mesh. You can select multiple meshes at once, but they need to be of the same element type. You also need to do this on a per FEM basis. there is no way to modify everything in an assembly at once.

 

Once could wiite a journal that would step through the assembly FEM and loop through the meshes in each component FEM.
