Hi All,
I am very new to FEM process and ANSYS as well.
I am trying to do a plane strain problem (2D) in ANSYS.
My problem is I don't know how to model primitives like sphere, cube, cylinder etc for 2D plane strain problem.
Like say can I model circle of 20mm radius for modeling sphere of 20mm radius???
Or can I model square of 50mm length for cube of 50mm.
May sound very dumb, but this is my genuine problem

Thank you for your time and help (in advance)
