Dear all,
i have two approaches to numbering an element.
In Approach 1 ,its easier to obtain coordinates
whiles in Approach 2,its easier to obtain element
numbers.in both approaches,it's hard to obtain a list of nodes.

i need assistance in obtaining the node list and coordinates .
any efficient approach is also welcomed. i've pasted a link
to the file.

Both of these can be easily automated. What's your end goal? Do you want to solve a matrix at some point?

Hello Sean,
My aim is to solve a matrix at some point...i will have four matrices for
the different elements.

This is it.
