I am trying to create simulation of a hydraulic cylinder. I created a midsurface in DesignModeler from Inventor part, and next solve the problem in Mechanical. First, I tried to make 2D analysis but i get an error
PlugIn Error: No valid bodies found for 2D Analysis in the folowing parts:
When I create 3D mesh, i get also volume mesh. So my question is: is it possible to create only a surface mesh, on this cylinder midsurface?
Hope I explained this right, I'm still learning FEM.
