the 1D elements are not currently supported, that's true. Also the 2D elements are supported only for 2D problems for now - no 2D elements embedded in 3D.
FYI: I am (slowly) adding the support for the elements of lower dimension, and even the 1D elements are planned, but I cannot tell the time frame, as the rest of the code has to be updated to allow that.

I am currrently looking for FEM packages to help me solve a system of beams and columns, basically a collection of 1D bernoulli/timoshenko line elements. I started reading SfePy docs and i am getting the idea that doing the above is not really possible here, am i right? Are only 2D area elements permitted in SfePy? Or is there any direct support for solving 1D line elements too..
