Probe Max Coordinates in all the steps

      Hi, I'm running a simulation for a prosthesis. I would like to know if there is a way to get the coordinates of the maximum pressure point in time. So the X Y Z coordinates of the maximum of every step for all the simulation. Maybe there is a way using probe?

      Thank you.

      I attached a screenshot if it helps.

      You could turn on the 'max' probe and then enter an appropriate 'display time' value. For each entered time value the max probe will be displayed. Then you could select that particular highlighted node (cntr+N) and its location would be displayed at the bottom right.

      Thank you very much for your answer.
      The problem is that when I select the maximum probe and then change the step, the node where the max is founded is always the same, because is the max of the whole simulation.
      In the simulation the maximum pressure move along the surface, I'm trying to plot or save the coordinates of the point (or nodes) of maximum pressure for every step. I'm looking for an automated way to do it, cause I have to do it multiple times.
      Thank you again for your answer
      Regards Nicola
