All,

It appears that ansys mechanical restricts the creation of remote points to Cartesian coordinate systems. Also, it appears that Remote loads can only be specified in Cartesian coordinate systems? Is this correct? I have need to apply remote loads in a local cylindrical coordinate system. Is there any reason why I couldn't do this via a command object?

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Hi,

I have the same problem,

I want to define a remote force by cylindrical coordinate system in a model but workbench only let me select the point for applying the force in Cartesian CSYS. I have created the cylindrical coordinate system but it does not appear in the dropdown selection of CSYS in the remote force properties.

Is there any other way to do this (maybe MAPDL)?
