ElementGeometry2D is used to define thickness of 2D FEM elements, all or laying on the chosen surface.
- Press the button, or press then keys.
- Define a thickness parameter.
- Optionally click
Addin the Task panel and then click on the face you want to have prescribed thickness. If the face selection is free, all remaining faces (which thickness is not defined by other FEM ElementGeometry2D objects) will be automatically assigned.
- Analysis combining shell elements with solid or edge elements is not supported in the current version (FreeCAD 0.18).
DataThickness: specifies the thickness of the shell.
