This is something you can easily do in Workbench LS-DYNA:


In LS-PrePost, you can check the element quality as follows:


Note that you will have different mesh quality metrics based on the element type (solid or shell) selected.

Solid elform=1 are hex elements while solid elform=10 are tet elements.

You can get the number of solid vs shell elements in LS-PrePost by clicking Misc. > View Model Info:
