Way to visualize the displacement of point masses

    • Otso Gächter

      Im doing Modal Analysis of a system with many point masses.

      In the visualisation of the solution (in Mechanical) I only see the displacement of the grid, but not the displacements of the individual point masses.

      Is there any simple way to visualize the displacement of these point masses?

      Hi Otso,

      Yes, you can plot. Please check the below image to plot deformation of point masses. Go to Solutions < worksheet < Material and element type information and right click on MASS21 to plot deformation for point masses.

      Please check if it solves your issue.

        Hi Akshay

        Thanks for your detailed and easy to follow response

        Is there any way to combine this visualisation with the deformation of the other geometry (meshed)?
