Does anyone know why I can't select beam faces or edges for fixtures or force loading in a static analysis of a frame weldment? Driving me crazy.
A weldment would automatically have beam elements applied to it which don't have faces/edges/vertices. If you want to apply fixtures and loads to faces/edges/vertices then you would want to right click on each of your beam bodies in your analysis and use 'treat as solid'.
you should be able to apply the restraints to the end nodes of the beams - the colored balls.
