How to control and set the nodes to specified location?

Dears, as a newbie and no many experience with FEA, please pardon me to ask these easy questions. I'm not familiar with the surface meshing, so usually I just use automatic mesh function, usually it's no problem when the loads are distruibuted on the surface, but when I try to locate the load on some specific nodes, I got problem, because there always have some deviation between nodes and the location I expected. I know there must have the way to solve this problem, but how? Can anybody do me a favour to show some details? Or is there any demo or guidance to see? Thanks indeed for any suggestion.

 

the location I expected.the location I expected.

Use Mesh -> Mesh Control -> Mesh Point on Surface..

Select Surface to set custome mesh and creat points where are you need.

 

Also, you can slice you surface using Geometry -> Solid -> Slice

 

Second variant is more usable. Because you can control mesh quality.
