I have a prob with weldment analysis. i did following steps

1) For a simple cantilever prob using weldment profile for my (custom) beam, the cosmos gave me right values for one study.
2) Then i went to feature manager and changed the orientation of my beam to 90 deg and updated in cosmos using "update all components"
3) But still the solution was same as previous one.It seems the member orientation change is not taken into account

But when i deleted the old study and ran a new study (with 90 deg orientation), cosmos gave me right results .

Is there anything i have to do after i change orientation to tell cosmos that i have changed my orientation of weldement profile
