Solving a Region with FEM

To solve a model with the finite element method (FEM), you must activate FEM for each relevant region.

  1. Select the region (or regions) in the in the 3D view or in the details tree that you want to solve with the FEM.
  2. In the details tree, from the right-click context menu, select Properties.
  3. On the Region properties dialog, click the Solution tab.
  4. Under Solve with special solution method, from the drop-down list, select Finite Element Method (FEM).
  5. Click OK to save the region properties and to close the dialog.
