Why are the loads not updated automatically when changing the structure after the import using the "Import Support Reactions as Load" tool?


In the case of this type of load import, the load is created temporarily. Thus, you can only select surfaces that exist in the model, for example.

The subsequent modification of the structure has no effect on the loads that have already been imported. Thus, the loads are not adjusted automatically. Therefore, it is recommended to model the entire structure first and then to import loads from other models.
