I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

(OP)
I defined sections and now I want to assign section but when I open the Edit Assign Section Assignment I do not see Sections to pick. What is the problem?
Thanks

RE: I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

Are you sure that when trying to assign section you have proper model and part open ?

RE: I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

(OP)
When I define a section as solid, I can not assign section but when I changed the section to shell, I can pick it. Does it matter?

RE: I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

Which section type you can assign depends on the type of part. So if your part is 2D or 3D solid then you can only assign solid section to it. But if your part is 3D shell then you have to select from available shell sections.

My part is 3d solid but I can not assign solid section. I can not pick it, Do not know why

RE: I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

That's rather unusual. Make sure that your solid section is displayed in Sections container in the model tree. Also carefully select proper region for section assignment. If nothing else works you can try creating new section during assignment (there's a button in Edit Section Assignment window on the right from expandable list that allows you to create new section). Was your part modeled in Abaqus or imported ?

RE: I don't see sections in Edit Section Assignment

Maybe the part is not a solid, but just the outer faces.
Display the part in the Part-module and use Tools->Query->Part Diagnostics to check.

Maybe you can convert the shell hull into a solid with Shape->Solid->From Shell.
Otherwise go back to the CAD system, check what it is there and transfer the solid via step-file to A/CAE.
