When I am splitting force and creating sketch there is no option in SW-13.
Is there any option to fix the position of sketch while splitting sketch.

I had very little luck splitting surfaces on-the-fly so now I no longer even try. If I need to add a force or remote load to a surface then I always do the split on the part and use it when setting up the analysis. I'm not sure how it was supposed to work (back in the day of SDRC I-DEAS you could split surfaces when you were applying loads/forces/restraints.)
Sorry I can't help you more than that.
I would suggest to create the split in the part itself and then bring that to simulation. I don't have simulation installed for SW2013, so can not verify.
I agree, Deepak. If I'm in this situation, I simply would get out of the Force dialog, and go back to the modeling environment to add the split first in the feature tree. It would also help having had used forethought in creating a separate configuration first specific to your FEA study, since changes may occur that you don't want in your design configuration(s).
Still the OP makes a good point that this functionality, if provided, should be improved. From a software developer's perspective, they only code what they are given as a definition to implement, so this one perhaps wasn't specific or thorough enough. That's why enhancement requests from customers / users are so valuable; we always don't know how our users will want to use the software.
That's what I said.
(I performed this in SW 2016, so double check in your version.)
You can right-click to fully define Sketch entities. You still cannot edit these, while in context of the Force definition. But if you accept the sketch and force definition, you can later Edit the sketch in the feature tree, if needed, because a new Split Line feature has been created with the associated sketch.
Not perfect, but please submit an enhancement request with your Value-Added Reseller so that this functionality can be improved in future releases. (Please note that you would have to update your software in the future to see this enhancement implemented.)
Hi Lomish, is there a way to edit the title of this posting? The word "Dimension" is spelled incorrectly; it helps when others are searching for specific terms.
That would require an Enhancement Request that would have to be voted on for the next version unless SW was going to release another Service Pack for v16.
yes i corrected. Thanks for your feedback but please let me know the answer if you verified now, because i want to make point load on the surface not the udl (you can understand if you are mechanical/civil engineer).
