nYou should go to the Discuss Simulation page and click on Structures, then click the Ask a Question button for your next question. The Feedback page is not the right place to post this question.nBeam elements are 3D and meshed on line bodies. You can draw the lines in the XY plane and add Displacement boundary conditions to keep the nodes in the XY plane.nORnYou can draw a cantilever beam in 2D by creating a surface in the XY plane and setting the Geometry cell in Workbench to Analysis Type = 2D.nWhen you mesh this surface using Mechanical, it will automatically be meshed with 2D elements. nYou have to choose between Plane Stress and assign a thickness, or Plane Strain for an infinite thickness.nn
