I have a conic surface where the surface load should act in the projection around the surface. Is this possible?


For a surface load, such an entry is not possible as there is no load type that can have the force act locally on the projected surface. In this case, you need to use line loads. These can later be loaded according to the line rotation. The detailed procedure is shown in the video. As you can see in the video, the lines have to be integrated manually into quadrangle surfaces. Furthermore, you should check the line rotation.
