Element numbering errors???

Element numbering errors???

Element numbering errors???

I have a 2D shell mesh reconstructed from a *.ply file. When I verify the mesh I get 55% errors in the elements (CPS3).

So I get a list of all the bad elements & reconstruct the mesh again with the nodes rearranged in the bad elements.

Now down to just 16 bad elements (~1.5%). if node renumbering isn't the issue what else could be wrong with these elements?

RE: Element numbering errors???

CPS3 are not shell elements.

RE: Element numbering errors???

Ahh think that might be the issue? Will change the element type later & find out.

YessssssssssssSSSSSSSSssssssss that was it!!! Thanks Mustaine3
