I have a node subjected to a concentrated load, but I cannot select it for the design in RF‑PUNCH Pro. Why?


In RF‑PUNCH Pro, you can select for design the nodes where the concentrated load is applied as a "nodal load."

Figure 01 - Load as "Free Concentrated Load" and "Nodal Load"


  • Free concentrated loads cannot be applied here as the location of the free concentrated loads is not defined by a node, but by their coordinates.
  • The nodes subjected to a nodal load can only be picked once a load has been selected for design.
