I would like to define bolt pretension for multiple beam connections using ACT.
Does anyone know how to do it?
BoltPre = ExtAPI.DataModel.Project.Model.Analyses.AddBoltPretensionBolt
BoltPre.ScopingMethod ?? = ScopingDefinitionMethod.BeamConnection??
BoltPre.BeamConnectionSelection = ... ??
BoltPre.Step = 50000
BoltPre.Step = Locked
Bolt.Pre.Orientation = CoordinateSystem
Or does anyone know any good source with all the commands?
I mean better than: https://storage.ansys.com/act/v192/ACTReferenceHTML/Mechanical/index.html#Reference.methode.Ansys.ACT.Automation.Mechanical.Analysis.AddBoltPretension.html

Hi - actually this is not well exposed yet (and in the the act documentation it is hard to find things many times).
The good part is that the scoping method can be changed through:
pret = ExtAPI.DataModel.Project.Model.Analyses.AddBoltPretension()
pret.InternalObject.GeometryDefineBy = 19 # 0=geometry selection, 1=named selection, 19=beam connection, 21=pretension section
pret.InternalObject.BeamConnectionSelection = beam_ID
beam_ID one can get by many ways say one is:
beam = ExtAPI.DataModel.GetObjectsByName(‘My Beam’)
beam_ID = beam.ObjectId
All the best

Great! Thanks a lot !!
Can you tell me how you found such information?

You are welcome. I just happened to have tried this at some point (I doubt the internal object is documented well).
