Mechanical APDL no longer supports pre-processing of LS-Dyna models. Plus the element types that support layering in MAPDL differ in how the data is stored versus the LS-Dyna shell element. Lastly back when MAPDL did support pre/solve/post of LS-Dyna models composites were not supported. So you would usually create the k file in MAPDL then use LS PrePost to finish off the set up. I'd recommend using Workbench LS-Dyna. For very complex layerings WB ACP supports WB LS-Dyna.

I should have been clearer on MAPDL supporting composites for LS-Dyna solver - MAT22 (composite damage) was supported. But not composites in the sense of section lay-ups as the ls-dyna shell did not use sections (it uses real constants).
