What it is a combination of some shells (sheetmetal parts) and some beams to transfer the loadings and provide some measures. Anyhow, I want to set this up in an assembly with the beams remaining constant, but, swap out the shell models as I iterate to a solution...
The problem I am having is this: Both the beam models and shell models generate meshes no problem as individual components. When I put them together I keep getting this error on 5 faces (same number of pairs my shell model has).
Surface ##### has shell properties but does not have material properties. Please add material properties to this surface.
I have in the part, and can't seem to get it to take in the assembly.
Mixed Mesh will not generate?It's a common topic here. You need to view/render the assembly shell & solids models together before running anything.
Make sure at the assembly level that you are compressing to the right surfaces.
Once you get a baseline running, copy the whole folder to a unique name and edit that one to try other geometries. Don't forget to render the shell & solid combined model before running again to be sure it makes sense.
