My 3D mesh does not have the smaller parts? Where are they?

What happened was that your mesh properties were set to ignore the smaller parts. You can choose the smallest component size that needs to be ignores in the 3D mesh. Results will still be calculated for this part based on the strain on the board, but the 3D FEA will run without that part.

Set: “Min Part Size”

Here are some examples:
