How can I prevent the FE mesh and all results from being deleted when importing a model?


When opening a model with results and FE mesh in a newer program version, it may happen that the FE mesh and thus the results are deleted. Therefore, it is recommended to always open models in the program version used as the last one. Updates may include customizations in the FE mesh generator, for example, which require to delete the mesh.

In Project Manager, there is an option to check the file with respect to its properties. You can also see the version number here (see Figure 01).
