Does anyone know how to detect or display which elements are missing an orientation in Nastran 9. I use Femap as the modeler and before Femap calls Nastran I get an error that says: "18 laminate elements were written with default orientation. Usualy laminates require a specific orientation". My model is very large and it would take me a very long time to find these elements. I called Nastran support but they could not help me. After i click ok on the error message, the program keeps running and i get answers, which seem right. There are no warnings or listing on the elements that have been given a default orientation. Thanks for your help!
