Dan,

You can do this using the following steps:

1. Go to the time step for which you want to save the mesh.
2. Select the elements you want to save.
3. Select File > Export..., choose LSDYNA Keyword in the "Show:" dropdown menu, and enter the file name you want to save.
4. In the popup dialog, choose "Selection only".

This creates an LSDYNA (.k) formatted file with node and element data. Let me know if that gives you what you need.

Cheers,

Dave

Hi Dave,

PostView 1.4 running on Mac OSX Lion crashes when I try to do this. I will try with the Linux and/or Windows version.

Dan,

I'm changing this to a bug report. Can you tell me at which point PostView crashes?

Thanks,
