Option in Ansys like Nastran deformable links – RBE3

      In Nastran the deformable links, RBE3, can connect all or some of the degrees of freedom. Does ANSYS do the same?

      RBE2 (rigid) can be related to Rigid Remote Points, the same cannot be said of RBE3.RBE3 requires the user to put weight values (which can be hard to calculate by hand for a general, non-uniform mesh), but weight functions are calculated automatically by the solver in Ansys.

      Try typing RBE3 into the search box (use the magnifying glass icon in the menu bar) and you will get a long list of discussions where more examples can be found.
