There are alots of reaons why one should used 2D analysis whenever is possible. I our case we use it to optimize the desing using the MECHANICA optimize tool.

I never needed to simplify my models to 2D while using pro/mechanica. It somehow even complicates the situation if you are working with unusual problems.
