How do I add point mass onto my structure in Workbench?

      I would like to carry out modal analysis of a plate with sensors. To simplify, I would like to make the sensors mass into point mass. May I know how can I do it in Workbench?

      Go to the Outline Tree and the Geometry branch 


      Right mouse button click and go to insert Point Mass


      Pick the surface/face where the mass is located and then add the rest of the details (mass,...).


      For more info see the help manual - search there for point mass.
