    Shaft Displacement Vs length (bending)

      I am trying to measure the displacement of a shaft under the loads generated by gears. I would like to plot the displacement of the nodes along the axis of the shaft Vs the length of the shaft. The first problem that I encounter is that there are missing nodes along the axis of the shaft. Is there a way to prescribe nodes along the shaft axis so I can measure their displacements?

      Is there a better way of doing this?
