Importing global ply results from MSC Nastran


Global ply ID results are not read into Femap from MSC Nastran op2 files. Instead we are just given the sequential ID, starting at 1 and ending at the N'th ply.


I know there is the "Model => Output => Global Ply" tool but this is proving very slow on a a model with only ten thousand elements and one load case.


If a user has gone to the effort of generating global ply ID's then it seems highly likely that he/she want them used in the results.
