How to put LoadMesh into LoadDefinition (using FEMAP API)

How to put LoadMesh into LoadDefinition (using FEMAP API)

How to put LoadMesh into LoadDefinition (using FEMAP API)

When I use a command LM = LD.ID all created loadMeshes disappears from model tree. If I don't use this command loadMeshes puts into Other Loads (passing any Load Definition).

CODE --> VisualBasic

Sub createLoadsX(i As Integer)
	LS.Active = LS.ID

	Dim gr As Group
	Dim grID As Long
	grID = wb.Sheets(wsh).Cells(2+i, 17).Value
	Dim s As Set
	Set gr = App.feGroup
	Set s = gr.List(FGR_NODE)

	Dim LM As femap.LoadMesh
	Set LM = App.feLoadMesh

	Dim LD As femap.LoadDefinition
	Set LD = App.feLoadDefinition
	'LD.Active = 3


	LM.XOn = True
	LM.YOn = False
	LM.ZOn = False

	LM.x = wb.Sheets(wsh).Cells(2+i, 13).Value

	'LM.expanded = True
	'LM.setID = LS.ID
	'LM.LoadDefinitionID = 3

	For j = 1 To s.Count
		LM.meshID = s.CurrentID

End Sub 

Can you help me, please.

RE: How to put LoadMesh into LoadDefinition (using FEMAP API)

WOW! I've found a solution!

CODE --> VisualBasic

Dim LD As femap.LoadDefinition
Set LD = App.feLoadDefinition


CODE --> VisualBasic

LM.LoadDefinitionID = 3 

So, LD.loadType needs to be FT_NODE and LD.dataType = FT_SURF_LOAD. This constants will create load definition with type Force on Node,
title will be "Acceleration on Node" by default, but really this will be Force on Node.

I had that doubt too, thanks for sharing the answer.
