i have a shaft supported in 3 points, the middle point has 1mm play and there is 2800lb applie between heach support so 2x2800lbs. i would like to see the forces applied to each support.
i tried running the simulation then doind stactic force and selecting the 3 supports but i always get the same result. and the shaft always stays straight when i do this... i would have expected the middle supprt to get less and less weight on it as i made the gap between the shaft and the support bigger.
am i doing something wrong?
