Hello everyone! I am new to the CCX community but so far I love it. I’m currently working on an automated script for simulating mechanical response (simple compression test) of 3D printed lattices. I’ve been able to generate the structures in a separate software and import elements, nodes, BC’s, etc. However, I am consistently receiving the following Error when I import into PrePoMax:
“Error: Failed to import section: *SOLID SECTION, ELSET=ALL_NODES, MATERIAL=MAT_FIG4_TGH_15”
I’m assigning the material to the entire lattice, so the section is simply all elements. I’m using python to modify and compile the .inp file from the secondary software, so I thought it was an issue with my code. However, I tried creating the section from within PrePoMax, then exporting a .inp, then re-importing that same .inp and I receive the same error.
I can attach my .inp input file example if that is helpful. I appreciate any help that could be provided on this!
nset not according to input deck rules, the manual reads:
• Enter any needed parameters and their values.
Following line if the GENERATE parameter is omitted:
• List of nodes and/or sets of nodes previously defined to be assigned to this
node set (maximum 16 entries per line).
@Calc_em Oh I see. I may have had an older file open when I copied the error message. This is what is reads now:
Error: Failed to import section: *SOLID SECTION, MATERIAL=MAT_FIG4_TGH_15, ELSET=ALL_ELEMENTS
Where ALL_ELEMENTS is just all of the elements.
