Pressure Vessel Linearization (Simulation): Invalid points

Pressure Vessel Linearization (Simulation): Invalid points

Hi, I did the section of the vessel where I need to perform the stress classification line and, after selecting the two points (on the same component and material), the error message shown in the attached photo appeared (SolidWorks Simulation 2022 SP3.1).

Also, I noticed that when I point the mouse to select the point as close to the edge as possible, the outline of the component appears shifted from where it is displayed (I attach photo). Could you please explain?

RE: Pressure Vessel Linearization (Simulation): Invalid points

This is a known issue with the linearization tool in SolidWorks.

Make sure you pick up 2 points on the right plane.
Use dedicated section plane for the linearization.
Use split-line for the linearization process.
