Some new fuctions and capabiliies are valuable and helpful .However 1D element  and 2D element in femap is discontiunious in deformed view. Regarding the function, femap group team may can improve and enahance.

I think that femap shoud impove and enhance functions in view of Von-Mises stress of beam and bar element.  This is beam Mises stress in ansys.

Femap can calculate von-Mises stresses for beam/bar cross-sections - look at the following video.



I kown this function, but Von-Mises stresses for Beam/Bar cross sections only show one cross section or more of cross sections. If you would like to show the Von-Mises stresses for whole Beam/ Bar model, Femap can't achieve it. Femap only caculate the bending stresses or recovery point stresses for Beam/Bar elements. In other finite elemnet waresofts,for example ansys, abaqus etc, you can view the Von-Mises stresses for whole Bar/Beam elements.
