Create Displacement, Rotation, Velocity and Acceleration Responses

Use the Disps. tool to create displacement, rotation, velocity, or acceleration responses from selected nodes.

  1. From the Design Explorer ribbon, click the Disps. tool.

    Figure 1.
  2. Use the drop-down menu on the left side of the guide bar to select the response type.
  3. Optional: Check the Create one response for each selected entity option.
  4. Select one or more nodes.
    If the option above is unchecked, selecting the first node will create a response. By default, the response will be the maximum absolute value of the displacement/rotation magnitude for the selected node(s). If the above option is checked, a response will be created for each selected node.
  5. Make any desired modifications to the created response in the microdialog.
