I've been trying to change the spring element used by workbench. WB uses the element combin39 by default and I'd like to change that to combin40. All I know is, that I can do that by inserting a command right below the definition of the spring. But what does this command look like?
This is, what I tried so far:
! Commands inserted into this file will be executed just after the spring definition.
! The material, type, and real number for this spring is equal to the parameter "_sid".
! Active UNIT system in Workbench when this object was created: Metric (mm, kg, N, s, mV, mA)
! NOTE: Any data that requires units (such as mass) is assumed to be in the consistent solver unit system.
! See Solving Units in the help system for more information.
Ansys then uses the element combin40, but the solver output says, that the nodes I and J of that element are not coincident. I tried scoping the spring to a face, to an edge and even to a single node, but the warning message didn't change. Do you have an idea what the problem might be?
