A developer/preview PrePoMax version v2.0.4 has been released

In this version:

  • a Point mass section was added (can be defined on node sets and on reference points)
  • a Distributed mass section was added (can be defined on surfaces)
  • the pyramid face naming was fixed which enables normal use of surfaces defined on them (pressure load, contact, …)
  • various bugs exterminated :slight_smile:

When a mass section is defined, mass elements are added to the model. For inertia effects in dynamic analysis, that suffices. However, for static analysis using body loads (gravity of centrifugal load), additional load must be defined for the mass sections. In the load definitions, the Region type must be changed to the Mass section, and the appropriate mass section must be selected.
