Mesh, Edge/Skin Element has been enhanced for FEMAP version 2020.1.
The workflow the command of has changed to go right in the Edge/Face Selection dialog box.
Free Face or Free Edge can now be used to quickly select all free faces or free edges in the model.
The user will also be prompted if they would like to apply element offsets, saving time from modifying elements at later stages.

Mesh, Connect, Rigid now allows the user to specify a minimum number of target nodes per source node.
The user can also specify if multiple source nodes can map to the same target nodes.
The performance has been enhanced to make the searching for target nodes much more efficient.

A new command has been added as a model checks.
Tools, Check, Mesh Interference will determine if any line, planar or solid elements passes through any other elements taking into account cross-sections of line elements and thickness of planar elements.
The user can select to group these elements for later use.
