How can I get the number of nodes and elements in my model?
To get a count of the number of nodes and elements in a model go to Tools > Scene Statistics. This will bring up a panel giving you the required information. Take note that only model entities that are visible in the graphics window are reported, so make sure everything you want counted is displayed.
Where does it show the number of nodes in the model? I only see the number of elements (and other stuff)
In SimXpert nodes can also be referred to as grid points. In the Scene Statistics information panel look for the GRID entry. This shows the number of nodes
