Hi Robert,

Its been a while since your post in 2012, I was wondering if you have any news on the lower dimension elements? Specifically I am interested in 1D elements in 3D space, I do note you said before that 2D-3D element weren't available at the time.

Hi Nimish,

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.
