I get an error message saying that no material is assigned to one or more point elements. How to solve this problem?

Answer

To prevent the error message (Figure 1) from appearing and the calculation to be started, it is necessary to assign a material to the corresponding point elements as follows:

Figure 01 - Error Message 'Material Not Defined'

  • Right-click the entire cross-section: 'Reduce Cross-Section into Elements', Figure 2
Figure 02 - Reduce Cross-Section into Elements

  • Selection of the corresponding elements or all point elements with the status ‘Insert’ by using the Views navigator, because it is only possible to define a material for them (in contrast to point elements with the ‘Remove’ status)
  • Assign the corresponding material and confirm with OK, Figure 3

  • Deactivation of visibility
  • Select all elements and right-click one of the selected elements: 'Create Cross-Section from Selected Elements', Figure 4
