how do i apply force to part of a face?
Split the face first.
i put a 3d pad on the surface and applied the force on the pad. is there another way?
Hi Scott:I believe Mark meant to open a sketch on the face, draw a rectangle or other closed contour, and split the face. The command is "Insert...Curve...Split Line", and just pick the face to split. It is a common technique in SolidWorks FEA to split a face to provide a loading patch or mesh control. Hope that helps. -Tony
Here you go. You can apply a force just to the circular face of the larger rectangular face.
whats the procedure to make this work?
I guess I don't understand your latest question. Anthony and I showed you how to split a face. All you need to do is apply a load to it?
Maybe if you can give us a screenshot of what you're trying to do it would be helpful.
i was starting the split line first. now i see i have create the sketch first then features,curves,split line, select the sketch.
Search the Help for the term "Split Line". It shows you in pictures how to do it.
