I have a geometry in explicit dynamics that I'd like to add a surface coating to, but the option under the geometry tab is grayed out. The only option available is to add a point mass. I'm working with the software version 19.1. Any help is greatly appreciated!

This is from the manual:

Is only supported for structural analysis types that are using the Mechanical APDL Solver. Analyses include Static Structural Analysis, Transient Structural Analysis, Transient Structural Analysis Using Linked Modal Analysis System, and Linear Dynamic Analysis types.
