How can i conduct mesh convergence for sandwich panell?

      I need to do mesh convergence for sandwich panel. I imported the core structure into the mechanical model and created the mesh. Then I created two composite sheet for the sandwich panel at acp module. When i try to add convergence solution, there is no convergence option. How can I obtain mesh convergence graph for whole panel?

      From help documentation: Using Adaptive Convergence (ansys.com)
      Convergence is not supported for:
      A model with Layered Sections.
      If you need to do a convergence study with layered elements, then you will have to go to upstream systems (ACP, Mechanical model) and modify the mesh. Then compare the results between the original and modified mesh. This can be done manually or set mesh sizes as parameters and do a parametric study

      Thank you for your answer. I'll try manually.
