Hi All,


I seem to have a very nice midsurfaced aileron in the iprt, but when I go to to the fem some of the faces don't appear as polygon bodies. (see also video attached).


Thx for the help,



Re: Midsurfacing

Good day Jens,

Try in FEM to recreate some geometry. It may be that some of them were wrongly imported or are hidden ?

Hi Jens,


Please check if you considered all CAD Geometry from your part or ipart in the FEM File. If you generate a new FEM, you can select the Geometry to use in the "New Fem" Dialog.

Typically "All Visible" is the default, please check if the correct selection is made. You can also select the geometry to use manually.



If the geometry is correctly selected the Update Polygon Bodies might help (like Tomek explained in his post).


Best Regards


In an existing fem, you can Rightclick the FEM File in Simulation Navigator and select "Edit". This allows you to modify the geometry in an existing simulation setup.

Hello Jens,


Try splitting those surfaces before going to FEM file, it can work.
