NOTES:

  • For documents with surface geometry only (no solids), only RefSurfShellElementMesh is supported.

  • BeamElementMesh is supported only for static, buckling, and frequency studies.

  • Drop test studies support solid mesh only.

  • For optimization and fatigue studies do not have mesh on their own. They use mesh of referenced studies. Mesh type is set to SolidElementMesh.
