When I go to select geometry in sheet metal for stress analysis, I can't seem to select any of the part. Do I need to convert this into a standard part before analysis?

Hi Luke,

 

SE should come up with the error message about needing a "Mid-Surface" to be created prior to setting up the analysis. If not, expand the menu behind "Add Body" to get to it...follow the prompts, then re-try your analysis.
