Changing elements from shell to solid

Hi everyone,


it there a way to switch back from shell to solid elements w/o creating a new simulation?

Let me explain: in my last simulation I had to investigate a stack of sheets and, in order to reduce the # of elements, I have defined the sheets as shell elements. After I realized that because of some particular constraints I wasn't able to obtain good results with shell elements, I tried to switch back to solid elements but I couldn't find a "shell2solid" button/option.
Can you help me?

As always, thank you in advance
