When entering an imposed support deformation, I receive an error message telling me that the support has not been defined. What does it mean?


If a support is loaded with the load type 'Imposed Nodal Deformation' or 'Imposed Line Displacement', then this support must be stored in the direction of the displacement. Stringy support is also not sufficient at this location. An error message is displayed (see Figure 1 and Figure 2).
