Bug in Mechanical ACT ForceReaction or wrong acces?

    • Maxwell


      I was trying to add a force reaction probe result in Mechanical using ACT.

      I set it up to look for contact regions and everything is working well so far.
      But when I am trying to use "ForceReaction.ContactRegionSelection" to
      set up the target contact, it just does nothing, also not giving me any error.

      But whenever I chose a contact region manually, I also got a contact region back
      when entering "ForceReaction.ContactRegionSelection" in the console.

      Is this a bug or is there another way to set up the location for the probe with ACT?

      Thank you!

      Well, if you named your contact e.g. "ContactName", you could just use:

      ForceReaction.InternalObject.BoundaryConditionSelection =


      That's how I solved it before.
