Good Afternoon Friends,



I Got a question. How to make a one point connection between rail and wheel? I try to analyze in Simulation a force in a wheel, in a point where wheel contacts with rail.

I have no idea, how to make this type of connection in SW. In first step I try to use "split lines" and try to make a connection between rail and wheel using this line. This won't work - I can only make "concentrically" connection. Other idea is add a force in one point (at the bottom of the wheel), when the wheel were blocked in all directions. But i can't do this also. In SW is not possible to create a connection (or force) in a node like a FEMAP or ANSYS.
