          are you using solids? shells? beams?

           

          if you have a point to select, you can create a point load

          but ask yourself, does a point load really exist in the physical world? take a look at some examples that people have done here on the forum and the issues they run into with point loads, namingly high stress in that area. if you don't need the info there, thats ok
