I have FEMAP 11.2,, but am working for a client using FEMAP 10.1. They normally use PATRAN 10.1 as their primary pre/post for MSC Nastran [double yuk!] At any rate, I need to import a model created in PATRAN into FEMAP and have been trying to do so by having PATRAN create a Patran Nuetral file with all the geometry, elements, etc included. The file wants to save out as a .out file and FEMAP is apparently looking for a .PAT file. Not sure what the difference is. At any rate, I cannot read in the .db file from PATRAN directly into FEMAP and when processing the .out neutral file, I get a lot of "skipped last 1 lines of data packet type....." messages that come into FEMAP. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong during this import operation?
