When entering an imposed support deformation, I receive an error message saying that the support is not defined. What does it mean?


If the support is subjected to the "Imposed Nodal Deformation" or "Imposed Line Deformation" load type, this support must be loaded in the direction of the displacement. A spring support is also not sufficient at this location. The error message is displayed (see Figure 01 and Figure 02).
