Hello all,

I'm new to Pro E wildfire as well as it's ability to use Mechanica as well. basically I have a simple differential mount and I need to do an quick fea on it. I'm trying to do it, but it will not work, somehting about the shell pair will not work. Any ideas? I have uploaded the small pic so someone knows it well could help me out. Thanks

I couldnt open the file you attached.why did you need to use shell models? if you have to , go and read some important points of creating shells in the user's manual. You probably have problems with meshing...?
