    Part IDs can't be scoped directly. We need to scope based on the mapdl_element_type property and and then split it further using mat property. Example below:

    import os
    from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
    from ansys.dpf.core.plotter import DpfPlotter
    
    out_path = r"\PATH\TO\RST"
    rst_path = os.path.join(out_path, "file.rst")
    
    ds = dpf.DataSources(rst_path)
    model = dpf.Model(ds)
    mesh = model.metadata.meshed_region
    
    """
    # SHELL181
    """
    
    scope_op = dpf.operators.scoping.on_property(requested_location="Elemental",
                                           property_name="mapdl_element_type",
                                           property_id=181,
                                           data_sources=ds)
    scoping = scope_op.outputs.mesh_scoping()
    print(scoping)
    
    mesh_scoping_op = dpf.operators.scoping.split_on_property_type(mesh_scoping=scoping, mesh=mesh, label1="mat")
    mesh_scoping = mesh_scoping_op.outputs.mesh_scoping.get_data()
    print(mesh_scoping)
