KR368: I'd like to plot the von Mises stress for selected areas in a 3D model. I select the nodes attached to these areas using select logic. However, then I do a contour plot of the nodal solution (PLNSOL), it seems to plot the stress for all the areas, not just the selected surfaces. How do I plot stresses only for the selected areas?

Yes that is the way it is supposed to work. To get closer to what you want, you should select the area, select the nodes attached to that area,
then select the elements attached to those nodes.
