I would do this by using the "List selected" option in the plot menu.
Right-click on the plot in the feature tree and select "List selected". Pick the part you wish to interrogate then click the "update" button and this will list the stress at every node on the part!
By clicking the "value" column header in the table, you can reorder the values into numerical order with the highest at the top, and when you highlight the first row in the table, the location of the point will be shown on the model.
You can then down-arrow through the list until you reach the first point that looks like it is in an area you are interested in.
Alternatively, as a quicker but less accurate way, if you try using the iso-clipping function (also available by right-clicking the plot in the feature tree) you can move the slider bar to show areas of stress above a given limit and watch for where the first stress appears at a point of interest.
Hi Jason, in CW Pro (also Adv Pro) v2008, a feature called Trend Tracker was added. You can use this feature, even on a single study, to isolate specific areas of interest. Create a Tracked Data "graph" for "Max over Selected Entities" selecting only the features/faces that you are concerned about and then "Set Baseline". The single point on each graph will be the max value across those entities.
This feature has been expanded to Sensors in v2009. Check it out!!!
