Bulk Data Entry Defines a single-point constraint set as a union of single-point constraint sets defined via SPC or SPC1 entries.

Field Contents SI Unit Example
SID New single-point constraint set identification number.

(Integer > 0)

Si Single-point constraint sets identification numbers defined via SPC or SPC1 entries. The Si values must be unique.

(Integer > 0 or <PartName.number>) 4



  1. The Si field should not reference the identification number of a single-point constraint set defined by another SPCADD entry.
  2. SPCADD entries take precedence over SPC or SPC1 entries. If both have the same set ID, only the SPCADD entry is used.
  3. If all Si are non-existent, the solver will exit with an error termination.
  4. Supported local entries in specific parts can be referenced by the use of "fully-qualified references" on SPCADD entries in the model. A fully-qualified reference (PartName.number) is similar to the format of a numeric reference. PartName is the name of the part that contains the referenced local entry (part names are defined on the BEGIN Bulk Data Entry in the model). number is the identification number of a referenced local entry in the part PartName. See Parts and Instances in the User Guide for detailed information on the use of fully-qualified references.
