Modeling | Loading


When displaying a slab from above, the free rectangular loads have no hatching despite being activated in Display → Rendering → Loads. Unfortunately, this is not optimal for the display in the printout report. Can you help me?


Free rectangular loads have - compared with the ‘normal’ surface load - one disadvantage that the load graphically does not get a 'cover' and thus the load distribution is not clearly recognizable in the graphic printout.

It is possible to get by using Displaying Load Distribution in the Project Navigator - Results: This will make the 2D FE elements graphically colored, and the corresponding values will be output in the adjacent color panel.
