I need to change the element type as solid 95 in ansys workbench to mesh my model. For that I browsed and identified that it is possible through the insertion of commands. I inserted a command line as ET,1,solid 95 in the command, just below the part in pre-processing section. It showed green color tick. When I meshed, the command I inserted is not executed. If someone gives a proper information on how to change the element type from default selection in workbench through command or some other means, it will be very much helpful to me.

Hi vpvmech.
Did you find the solution. I am also stuck in the same place. I need to add solid 5 and solid45 to my model.
Could you explain how to do it.

With regards

right click on the body you want to change element type under the geometry tree, insert command "et,matid,solid45" or "et,matid,solid5"
it should work.
