select a mesh and show in poperty editor Data there is the mesh informations. If there are groups and the pref is set to export them, they are exported. Attached a rather small mesh with 10 groups. Export to *.inp and have a look at the inp files in an editor.

- Which mesh elements to export
The tooltip states that "If Highest is selected, only the highest elements will be exported." but what is meant with "highest elements". Are there several elements the highest ones?
We might should rename or deactivate the option?bernd wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 3:43 pm
BUT the FEM is nearly useless ... It is easy possible to have an mixed mesh in which a edge which belongs to a face is needed for an edge too. A simple example is a slab the a beam or pretension. The slab is modelled with a shell elements and the beam (pre tension) with edge elements. These edges belong to the face of the slab.
Any way the FEM was really helpful when I started to implement the mixed mesh analyis, which is not finished because of the described export problem.
Thank you. This is now described.

This is now a separate bug report:
It is not that the options does not change anything. It is just it is not as useful as asumed when it was implemented. Furthermore the name FEM ist not a good name. I will think of something better in 0.19. Feel free to make a FEM bug report and assign it to me.
