When generating a FE mesh, a message appears saying that an internal node is too distant.


This message is shown if an integrated node (a node in a surface) is not located in the surface plane (Figure 01).

To solve this problem, move the node in the surface plane or delete the corresponding nodal number from the list of the objects integrated in the surface (Figure 02).
