Circular plate with circular void on SOFIMSHA

Good afternoon,

I am trying to design a circular plate with an excentric circular void. I can only work with SOFIMSHA in Teddy.

My starting point was to generate the nodes on the plate end, i.e. the outter node ring.
Then I generated the nodes of the circular void countour, i.e. the inner node ring.
To finish, I intended to automatically generate the mesh with the functions UMSH and UBND, as seen below:

GRUP 11 BEZ ‘Deckel’
QUAD PROP MNR 1 MBW 10 T 0.25 LAGE OBEN
UBND OUT SEL KNOT N1 (1000+#NER1 1001 -1) \$ outter node ring (Plate end)
UBND IN SEL KNOT N1 (2000+#NER2 2001 -1) \$ inner node ring (Void contour)

By applying this function for two circular geometries nothing happens. No mesh is generated at all.
However, if I replace the inner circular void by a rectangular void, the functions works perfectly.

I would like to ask for any king of help and thoughts on how to mesh a circular plate with a non eccentric circular void.

Hello LFH

Could you please post the full TEDDY example?
(prog aqua + prog sofimsha)

If you need help on SOFiMSHA you can look at the following TEDDY examples.
