BUG? Surface load in local direction on panels

Hi,

 

I seem to have a problem applying surface loads on panels in the local Z direction. When applying a global load to all panels it all works fine, but when switching to local direction some/a lot of the loads dissapear. I can't figure out how to solve this issue.

I've attached a screenshot of the structure with the applied loads. All panels should have a load, but they don't.

Andreas you are using EDU version :smileyhappy:

Let's say it is limitation of this version.

Different tolerance of checking flatness of panels

See below, depending on tolerance this panel can be assumed as flat or not

(Application attached ; assumptions: firts three points of contours \ panels \ claddings are treated as points definig surface)

Haha, yes I'm trying to model  the pressure on Darth Vader's helmet if he were to go scuba diving :smileyhappy:

 

The preliminary version was created by an EngD student working for us, that's why it's in the EDU format. Guess we have to model it from scratch again :smileysad:

 

Thanks for your help!
