assign a membrane sectionto a skin

hello every one
I have created a skin on my model and I want to assign a membrane section to it, I have created a property for it too.
but when I ran the analysis it had this error: 17280 elements have missing property definitions. The elements have been identified in element set ErrElemMissingSection.
as i said I created the proper property section and assign a membrane for this skin
but I am completely out of idea why this error pops up
please helpneutral

RE: assign a membrane sectionto a skin

You also have to select the skin and assign a membrane element type to it.

RE: assign a membrane sectionto a skin

Do you mean in the mesh module?
it is skin and as far as I know and read it is not possible to assign separate mesh to skin

RE: assign a membrane sectionto a skin

Yes, in the mesh module. You just have to click "Assign Element Type", select the skin (switch selection mode to Skins) and choose Membrane element type.
