Guidelines for Load Sets
If you need more information on what a load set is and why you should group your loads, see Understanding Load Sets.
When you create structural or heat load sets, use the following guidelines:
Use names that are 32 characters or fewer. You can use alphanumeric characters and underbars. Names must start with alphabetic characters.
The software will not permit you to use a name already used for another load, constraint, or property set.
Use names that uniquely and clearly identify the objective, placement, or other key characteristic of the set. If you use the default names, you or other users may have trouble distinguishing the sets later.
You can include as many different entities and types of loads as you want within a single load set, with the exception of loads that affect the entire model. You can only include one centrifugal load, gravity load, or MEC/T temperature load per load set.
There is no limit to the number of load sets you can create or the number of loads you can include in a load set.
If you attempt to delete a point associated with a load or constraint, the software informs you of the association by pointing out that the geometry is referenced by a simulation feature. You can delete the point, but the software also deletes any associated load or constraint.
You can edit and delete the individual loads or constraints that make up a set. You can also edit and delete a constraint set or load set. With constraint and load set editing, the only aspects of the set you can change are the name or the set description.
You can remove a given load or constraint from its set by editing the name of the load set or constraint set.
