      ESURF is a MAPDL command used to overly elements on the free faces of selected nodes. It is often used to create contact and target elements to form contact pairs. It can only create line or surface elements. That error message indicates that ESURF is attempting to overlay another element type (probably a solid element). You should verify that the element type to be used by the ESURF command has been created (ET command) and activated (TYPE command) before ESURF is issued.n
