Loads and Supports

Use the Loads tools on the Structure ribbon to apply forces, pressures, torques, and supports to your model. You can also add G loads using the Model Browser.

As a general rule, loads and supports should be applied to non–design spaces rather than design spaces. You can also move loads and supports away from your model and connect them to geometry features using connectors.
