Structure Loads on Regions
If you plan to load a specific surface region, your model needs to include the contour that defines the region.
For assemblies, you cannot load geometry that Creo Simulate merges during a run, such as mated surfaces. You also cannot load geometry associated with merged geometry, such as points associated with mated surfaces. If you cannot avoid placing loads on these geometric entities, you need to work with regions.
