a picture here would be really helpful
or post the model
is one part not meshing all together or is it maybe excluded?
Thanks for the reply Jared,
I have attached the model.
My background is with AutoCAD and FEA software with shell and beam elements.
Please criticize me with any part of the model since I am learning.
Here are a few notes on the model:
I could not get the model to run if I did not merge the extrusions, so all my members have the same properties but I want different properties.
Tried to create a shell mesh to apply moments to the model since they cannot be applied to a solid model.
Thanks for you help.

what is your goal with this particular analysis?
what is the simplest level that you can start with?
the reason i ask this is that i do not have access to cosmos2008 to even check what i suggest existed back in those versions
regarding a moment, remember that you can apply a moment through the force/moment loading condition
