Gravity Load Cases: Different Orientation of Gravity in each load case

Hello Everyone,

 

I wanted to check the impact of gravities on different directions for my model by using load cases.

 

When I set the gravitational direction, it changes the X, Y and Z multipliers for all the load cases..

 

It seems that, for gravity loads, it is only possible to create load cases that would have different intensity, but not different directions.

 

Is it possible to do what  intend?

 

Thanks a lot!

I think you are right, the direction of gravity is fixed in one DS, no matter what the loadcase is.

The only cheap way I know is to do it with multiple DSs.

Don't be sad, please. :smileyhappy:

Workaround is better than no solution, isn't it? :smileyhappy:

 

Best,
