When using the "Import Support Reactions as Load" function, I get the message "No surface has been selected upon which the load is to be applied." What is the reason for this message?


According to the default setting in the program, it is defined that the loads act on all surfaces.

However, if there is no surface available in the file, the load cannot act and a warning will be displayed. If you click "OK" to confirm the message, the load will be imported into the model anyhow, but not applied to any surface. However, as soon as you define a surface , the imported loads can act on it.
