1D Elements Cross section property is missing in Rollcage Mesh using Line Mesh

Question

1D Elements are created in Line by using 1D --> Line Mesh option. All lines are mesh, which shows the nodes while meshing.

After Elements are created, by using Cross section visualization tool, Some Elements are not having the Cross sectional property. Which is displayed as a line only. Other lines are displayed as Circular cross section.

Prakash,

 

You are facing "Vector Orientation Error" in your case.

 

Refer : 1D > Bar  >  update  > Select the Elements ( Which left even after Mesh ) & change the orientation Vector to perpendicular axis > update the all the parameters. It will update the elements.

 

Ex -  In your case, elements along Z-axis are facing Vector Orientation Error. You can refer above panel. Select remaining elements. Orientation Vector to "X-axis / Y-axis" & update all parameters. It will visualize all the elements.

 

You can try all above mentioned steps & if the same problem persist, then kindly share your model file through secure Drop-box
