BIOMCH-Lers,

A student here downloaded the lumbar spine mesh from the ISB site. He has
gotten thousands of "element has zero or negative volume" messages upon
execution for the original elements; the elements he added are fine. We
suspected a node numbering problem but thought that this would manifest
itself during preprocessing. Has anyone else encountered this as well?
Any advice is appreciated. Please respond to the student, Nils, directly
at goetzen@biomat.dental.ufl.edu

Thanks,
Andrew J. Rapoff, Ph.D.
