Hey, I just started using ANSYS Mechanical for a class.
We are creating a Truss using only LINK180 elements. I need to constrain one of the nodes in the UX,UY,UZ,ROTX,ROTY,& ROTZ directions. However, when I apply the displacement constraints on the node, I only have the option to contrain the UX,UY,UZ, VELX,VELY,VELZ directions. ANyon know what setting I need to change so that I can constrain in the ROT directions?? thanks

A LINK180 element only has UX, UY, UZ degrees of freedom at each node. No rotation is computed by the element.
