hi everyone,
I am new using elmer. I got this error when i run the model

I am trying to do a electrostatic simulation with just 1 body. it says Material not found, but I add air as a material and I clicked the box for body 1, which is the only body in the simulation.
thanks!

Can you post the *.sif file? This is a compilation of the settings you did in the GUI. It is used an input for the solver.

Hi,
according to the sif file, there is no material assigned to the body.
Could it be that you forgot to do "save project" after having assigned the material in the GUI?
HTH,
Matthias

oops, i didn't realise that you had to save project everytime that you change something.
thank you!
