I have a problem with creation of virtual beams, please see the attached image. When I create the virtual beam in the upper and the lower slab, the direction is ok (see the virtual section local axis).
But when I want to do the same for the wall - the red selection - the axis is in a wrong direction, I want it to be in the global axis Z direction, see the second image attached. I tried to do it with the Direction Vector (0,0,1), but nothing happens when I try to add it.
Ive also attached the model.
Virtual beams can't be formed in global Z-direction. It can only be made global X-Y plane.
To obtain the results along the particular line or plane for plate, beam or solid elements, local direction force sum option can be used.

Although reference video is made in Gen but the procedure remains the same.
