Please read: problem- defining cutting forces in Simcenter

Hello people!

 

I have been simulating a 3D printed workpiece which has been turned on a lathe. I would like to give the cutting forces acting on the workpiece(in all 3 directions). I have the values of forces acting on each point of the workpiece. 

How to load the component using these cutting forces as point loads? 
Shall I use RBE3 or just select a node and apply load?

Thanks in advance! Smiley Happy
