 Jon,


  That case was for the Construction Path, if I remember it correctly?


  Here I am talking about generic FEA approach. In a scenario such as yours, using stress probes will always either give you the max. or the min of the values extrapolated from the 2 elements connecting to that body. For simplicity, let's say that this node is being shared by only 2 elements and assume that they have different materials.



when your node is being shared by different parts and you want the average of those 2. Note that you can't scope to a vertex, but only to nodes. Then, I think something like this should help:



Basically, what you are just seeing here is the average values displayed in the first picture of my post. 


Hope this helps.
