Thomas Günthel Modeling | Loading RFEM

I receive Warning 11006 "The free load is not used on any surface" even though the load lies exactly on one surface edge, what can I do?


Free line loads have no tolerance for surface boundaries. This means that the coordinates of the line load have to match those of the line except for the last decimal place, or the line load must be shifted inwards by 1 mm, for example.
In the illustrated example in Figure 1, the line load runs exactly between two nodes, which do not have the absolutely identical coordinates in x-direction. In this dialog box, you can precisely select the nodes by using the Picking Tool.
