Hi,

I am very new at this, so please forgive my lack of skill!

I've installed Kratos on a Windows x64 machine by downloading it through GiD. I've tried going through the tutorials but am receiving some errors when following the text exactly. Are they up-to-date with the newest version of Kratos?

Here is the Python code I'm using, from the beginner tutorials:

`def main():`

structure_model_part = ModelPart("StructurePart")

structure_model_part.AddNodalSolutionStepVariable(DISPLACEMENT)

structure_model_part.AddNodalSolutionStepVariable(FORCE)

model_part_io_structure = ModelPartIO("C:/Users/tsvi/Desktop/kratos")

model_part_io_structure.ReadModelPart(structure_model_part)

structure_model_part.SetBufferSize(3)

mesh = structure_model_part.GetMesh()

printEverything(mesh, structure_model_part)

#### INIT SOLVER

#### SETTING UP SOLVER

structure_model_part.Properties[1].SetValue(CONSTITUTIVE_LAW, LinearElasticPlaneStrain2DLaw())

rotation_dof = False

import inspect

import solid_mechanics_python_solver

inspect.getmembers(solid_mechanics_python_solver, predicate=inspect.ismethod)

solid_mechanics_python_solver.AddDofs(structure_model_part, rotation_dof)

domain_size = 2

echo_level = 0

solver = solid_mechanics_python_solver.MechanicalSolver(structure_model_part, domain_size)

solver.ReformDofSetAtEachStep = True

solver_type = "StaticSolver" # other choices: DynamicSolver, RelaxedDynamicSolver

problem_type = "Mechanical"

linesearchflag = False

load_restart = False

solver.Initialize()

solver.Solve()

mesh = structure_model_part.GetMesh()

This fails with the error:

`NameError: global name 'STABILIZATION_FACTOR' is not defined`

Am I missing a reference? A wrong namespace? I would really appreciate any help to get on my feet with Kratos! I am doing research into the design and fabrication of laminated timber assemblies and would like to eventually run some structural simulations that can model the anisotropic properties of timber laminates.

Much thanks!

Tom
