Finding the Reaction Forces in an Assembly in Ansys

      Hi everyone, I am trying to use ANSYS to perform Topological Optimization on an Engine Mount Assembly for the Baja SAE design competition. Since joints are not supported in Ansys Topoligical Optimization, I figured I could just find the reaction forces on the engine riser from the assembly and then model it on it's own. Unfortunately, I am unable to do this because I get the error "the result data for FSUM is not contained in the result file". I would love some tips or insights to help.

      Under Analysis Settings, there are some Output Controls. I think the one you want to turn on is Nodal Forces, but turn on General Misc. too just in case.

      Hi!


      I have the same error in a project I am doing. I changed the output controls as peteroznewman said but I get the same error... shashanknx, did it worked for you?
