Material point outside generated mesh

Hello,
I am trying to create a model similar to the example of a column collapse (one of the basic example), but with one side sloped (right side of column; the idea was that in subsequent stage fixities would be removed in the same manner as in the column collapse tutorial example).

I did have some issues with generating a mesh but resolved the issue with the use of SemiStructured mesh.
Calculation data were kept the same and input files are successfully created.
After starting the Anura, it fails to solve the problem reporting that the material point is outside generated mesh.

With kind regards
Vedran

You might want to identify

You might want to identify which material point exits the mesh and how. If it's a plane strain problem this can happen if a fixity is omitted (say in the z-direction). If you can't identify which material point exits the mesh what I usually do is increase the size of the mesh around the problem domain to give the material points more space to move around. This helps me identify which material points are problematic.

Hope this helps
