Solid Edge Simulation - combination of beam and plates

Hi Solid Edge Analysts,

From the quick observe of the Solid Edge simulation it is probably not possible to analyze frame with sheets, e.g. frame structure with some reinforcement plates in corners. If I run the simulation within active frame I can generate only 1D mesh. If I am out of frame in assembly, it is possible to generate shell elements on plates, but no possiblity to generate 1D mesh.

Is this somehow possible? Some workaround?

Hi,

There is no way to do what you want. Only way is building a simulation geometry via shell elements (surface copy & offset them).
