I'm new to using the simulation side and I'm trying different weldment profiles to create a more rigid frame.
I've had a look at a few videos and tutorials and was wondering if anyone could have a quick look at the attached file (simple 1m long tube) to see if I have set up the simulation correctly. I've loaded it with 1000N force but ideally I'd like to use a point load but I need to do a bit more reading first!!
use the Joints button, above the Beams button under the menu Force/Torque to use point loads, there are two in this beam, one at each endpoint.
Many thanks Fahad !!
see if this helps:
