      Hi,
      Please, how I can get plot force (N) - displacement (mm)?
      At any point.

      Thanks

      Hello,


      You can use the chart to plot a force vs displacement.

      Under Solution folder in the tree, create the Force and Displacement results. Once evaluated, select both of them with Ctr key and create a new chart.


      Use the detail view of the chart to edit the curves plotted and the axis of the chart.

      Mekafime,


      You might have more success making your plot if you provide some screen snapshots of your model or if you Attach a Workbench Project Archive so we can show you how to plot what you want.

      Hi,


      In this point, I need plot Force vs displacement.

      Hello,


      In your force reaction, Change your location method to a geometry selection and select that vertex as shown below:

      Hi mekafime,


      Here is an example:




      I think what you need is for the chart to have several values to plot.  To do that, setup the Step Controls like this:


      The setting shown will put 5 points on the chart.  Set the Minimum Substeps to 10 if you want 10 points on the chart.
