Solid185 and Solid186 can be used with a layered section, perhaps that is possible here - see help manual for info on layered solids.


Otherwise in your pre-mesher, add every individual layer into a named selection (component in apdl CM) or use different element type (type 1, type 2,) for the different layers, or other property so we can select that later in apdl and assign properties (different for each layer).


Finally perhaps are you able to split the geometry into layers in that tool perhaps.
