Checking duplicated/coincident elements with same property.

Checking duplicated/coincident elements with same property.

Checking duplicated/coincident elements with same property.

(OP)
Hello!

I have an issue and I don't have the proper skills to solve it. I would appreciate any help.

I working in a very large model and I found some duplicated elements sharing the same property. I am not really sure if I found all the discrepancies.

So, is there a API or a femap tool that could make this job of checking the entire model looking for duplicated elements sharing the same property?

Cheers,

RE: Checking duplicated/coincident elements with same property.

there's a standard check for coincident elements, which should do what you want, with alittle effort ...

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?

RE: Checking duplicated/coincident elements with same property.

Hi

One option would be to group the elements based on property and the check coincident elements within each group. The effort will depend on how many properties you have.

But I don't know of any existing API meeting your specific requirement.

Thanks guys!

Sorry for the huge delay in answering back.

The problem was resolved well, thanks for the inputs.

RafaMoraes, how did you solve your problem? Did you use Tools > Check > Coincident Elements? Or did you use a custom API?

Thanks in advance
