Sure, it's a different thing. But those element share the "feature" that all of them have lower spatial dimension than the space.

Based on my limited knowledge, I think 1D elements have no relation to plate/shells, only beam/column or what we say truss elements are to be considered 1D elements. Having options in plate/shells element is nice but its too advanced.

Thanks for the offer, but I am learning this topic myself. If I knew exactly how to do it, it would be a piece of cake.
If there is anybody with some coding experience related to plates/shells/beams etc., any remark/suggestion will be appreciated.

What sort of tasks one have to take to implement support for 1D element? I'm also looking forward to it. However, you can provide me with brief instructions, see what I can do.

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
and even the 1D elements are planned, but I cannot tell the time frame, as
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..
