Load to Mass conversion

Question:

I am getting an error when trying to convert a pressure load to mass. I get the error 'The direction of gravity can only load conversion. Failed to generate mesh'. 

This seems to be the case for any type of load that I try to convert from load to mass. I have tried a pressure distribution based on a defined General Function, a Uniformly Distributed Load, Point Loads, etc. It appears that the Load to Mass function does not work.

Please let me know how to resolve this issue.

Thank you,



Answer:

Hi,

The pressure loads that you are trying to convert to masses are acting in the global X direction. The pressure loads which are acting in the global Z direction ( or gravitational direction) can only be converted to mass.
