### Including fully defined finite element

I am trying to determine if Fenics/Dolfin is a good environment for my use-case and I was hoping to get some advice.

I have a 3D hexahedral finite element which can provide the A and right-hand-side matrices for a non-linear statics/dynamics solid mechanics problem. I am interested in the parallel/solver capabilities of FeniCS and Dolfin and am wondering if I could integrate my element into the workflow. My ideal situation would be such that FeniCS/Dolfin handles the assembly of the global stiffness matrix and RHS and solution of Ax = RHS doing whatever parallelization/domain decomposition it usually does but I handle the rest.

Is this a good use case?
