The user has ICEM CFD licenses but no AI*Environment license:
When he writes an input file for abaqus via the "output" tab, only the node definitions are in the input file and not the element definitions, means the ELSET definitions are missing.

Only those families/parts are written out which have an element type definition and a boundary condition. Other elements will be omitted.
This means, if you need more than the pure node definitions in your abaqus input file but also the ELSET definitions you have to apply an element type definition and a boundary condition to the respective families/parts.

Or, better, you use the AI*Environment version, which is designed to create meshes, apply boundary conditions, constraints, loads, etc. and write complete input files for structural analysis solvers.
