masses to loads

Hello everybody, I have a model with some added masses in the nodes (masses active in X,Y,Z directions and active for all load cases) , when I run the  "static" calculation, Robot does not consider the added masses: the reactions consider only to self-weight and applied loads. Is there a way to convert the masses in loads? I am interested to convert only the masses acting in vertical direction Z.

Thanks

Not possible to convert masses onto loads but you can use them in Body Forces load.
