I get the 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 must match those of the line except for the last decimal place. Alternatively, the line load z. B. be offset by 1mm inwards.

In the example shown on the left, the line load runs exactly between two nodes that do not have the absolutely same coordinates in the x-direction. In this case, you can select exactly the nodes in the load dialog box by using the [Select] tool.
