(OP)
Basic setup - Creo Simulate at PART level.

Material Properties assigned.

Red Arrows = Four large holes are where the part is constrained

Green arrow(s) = Load acting straight down upon a rigid link established between the chamfer surfaces of the four smaller holes.

Question = How do I apply a load (located at a point in space) upon the surfaces of a rigid link?

Thanks,
Glenn

#### Recommended for you

I think you want to create a datum point where the load is acting and then create a rigid link between the point and the 4 holes. This will transfer the load to all 4 points. If you need the displacement of the load point you will have to create a measure. The graphical output will not show datum features.
