When I try to read a NASTRAN Bulk Data File into FE Modeler 9.0, the nodes
are all located at the origin, so none of my elements are produced correctly.
Why does this happen?

We have seen this in models coming from Europe and other places where a
comma is used as the decimal point instead of a period (see bad input below).
Just change all of the commas to periods and the NASTRAN file will be read in OK.
