    Joined part not sensing applied pressure forces

    Kyle Poplar

      Hi SWf,

      I have a shaft and a rotor that I have joined into one part. I have the shaft fixed and applied pressure onto the surfaces of the rotor. The solver comes up and says there is no external loads applied to the model....not sure why this is happening. I think that maybe even though the parts are joined the simulation might just be looking at the shaft and not including the rotor. I included a picture of my design tree you can see that next to the join feature there is a question mark so I'm looking into why that is there.

       

      Any suggestions on what to do would be appreciated, in the meantime I will keep troubleshooting. I am going to change the PSI to applied loads and see what that does.

       

      Thanks,

      KP
