Thanks for your reply.nYour are right, for this example i can use named seletions created in Spaiceclaim. Meanwhile i found a workaround: I can store a parameter in the name of a random named selection and retrieve it from there in mechanical. Not a really elegant solution but works for my initial question.nOverall i think creating named selections in spaceclaim is the better approach. Regarding this i faced another problem. I am using a loop to create faces and to add a named selection based on their face-IDs in spaiceclaim. The problem is that the faces do overlap and with every step in the loop the IDs change. Is there way to create named selection via coordinates (like putting all faces in a boundingbox)?n
