Diamonds checks the number of mesh nodes at calculation (elastic analysis). That means during the set up of the model, the geometry and the loads, there is no notification or warning when passing the maximum number of elements.

What you exactly can do with 2500 mesh nodes highly depends on the choosen mesh size. Below are some example structures with 2400-2500 mesh nodes and an acceptable mesh (not too fine and not too course).

## Bar structures

For bar structures, 2500 mesh nodes correspond with approximately 300 barres.

## Plate structures

For plate structure, there is no equivalent in number of plates. It depens on size of the plates and the choosen mesh.

## In your own Diamonds model

In your own Diamonds model, the number of mesh nodes is displayed at the elastic analysis.

In the image below, there are 221 mesh nodes.
