I would still be interested in a response, but after playing with the model some more, and updating all components a few times, it worked. But like I said, it would be nice to know why that message came up.
I have received this message also and I think that it comes fromthe Star.exe solver and it literally means that the element listedhas more nodes than the element group allows. This can happenwhen you are using both shell and solid elements in a mixed meshmodel, and the components of an assembly are changed inS/W without updating the description in CosmosWorks. Ihave also had it when I didn't have a mixed mesh and the databasein C/W got corrupted. If you have Adv.. Professional and canexport the database to Geostar you can list the element and checkthe element group specification. The bottom line is that italways pays to update the components in C/W whenever you make achange in S/W..
