GMesh Bug for FEM Analysis

Postby brazilianlcr » Wed Mar 06, 2019 7:10 pm

I need to run a simulation on a multibody solid made from several different materials. I assign each pad to a Solid Material, create a fusion and GMesh them. However, GMesh always outputs an empty mesh, with the following error:

The reference Shape is not a child nor it is the shape the mesh is made of. : <Solid object at 000000031BE9ABF0>

And then, naturally,

Error: The shapes for the mesh group for the reference shapes of analysis member: SolidMaterial could not be found!

Can anyone help me change my setup in order to debug GMesh? I'll attach the project in the comments, feel free to play around with it and try to figure it out. Thank y'all.
