    What is the best file format (iges, step...) for export surfaces from Rhino to Femap?
    I was using Femap only for meshing simple objects without surface geometry in background. Now I'm trying to mesh some object that I sketched in the question is: must I model nodes on each point that were imported with geometry or is there a more simple method?
    Can anybody direct me in few sentences, for example, meshing with plate elements...beam is 30mmx30mm...

    Best regards!
