I'm using Femap 11.2 and ran into an issue with getting all the related entities into a group, specifically CBUSH's orientation coordinate system. Here are the steps that led to my issue:
- Created a group with just the elements
- "Add Related Entities" command
- All the nodes related CSYS are added to the group, but not the CBUSH's CSYS that used to define its orientation
I don't remember running into this issue using an ealier version of Femap. This is frustrating because I used a Referenced Group that comprise of many parts and keep getting fatal errors because a CBUSH's CSYS did not get into the group that is being analyzed.
The orientation of CBUSH via a Coordinate System is a relatively new feature and unfortunately incorporating this into "Add Related" was never implemented. This capability however will work in the upcoming v11.3 release.
