To Define Bearing Loads
1. Click Home > Bearing. The Bearing Load dialog box opens.
2. Enter a name for the load, or use the default name.
3. Select an existing load set from the Member of Set area or click New to create a new load set.
4. Select circular curves or surfaces on which you want to place the bearing load. The References collector displays your selections.
5. Click Selected to set a UCS, or select the WCS, in the CSYS area. The current coordinate system is the default.
* If you are working on a 2D model, Creo Simulate uses the coordinate system you specified during the definition of the 2D model as the WCS.
6. Select one of the following to specify the magnitude and direction of the load:
Dir Points & Mag
Dir Vector & Mag
7. Select units from the drop-down list or accept the default units.
8. If you want to display the load that you just defined, click Preview. The software displays the load distribution and direction as a series of magenta arrows.
9. Click OK to complete the definition.
If the software identifies any problems with the way you defined the load, it displays a message box informing you of the situation.
If the software does not encounter any definition problems, it applies the loads that you specified to all the entities you selected. The software also adds a load icon to the geometry you are loading.
