Element material properties after trace import can be viewed by opening the ds.dat file in "Solver Files Directory." 

My model has 173 k elements, divided equally between 5 layers. However, when I look at the ds.dat file, ONLY material properties from the top layer are shown. (only 298 different material properties, despite all of the possible combinations; I was expecting it to be in the range of several thousands) 

Does anyone know if there is anything that restricts the ds.dat file? Is there a way to obtain the material properties of all of the elements in post-processing? 

 

Thank you.
