The table shows the restrictions when using a 2D simplification analysis.
|Feature||Options not available|
|Bodies||Make Rigid, Fix, Treat as Remote Mass, Treat as Remote Load.|
|Connections||Spring, pin, bolt, bearing, spot weld, edge weld, link, and rigid connection.|
|Contact sets||Virtual wall.
For thermal studies, no contact sets are available.
|Fixtures||Elastic support, bearing fixture, and grounded bolt. You cannot use the Split tab to apply fixtures to a section of a face.|
|External Loads||Flow effects, remote load/mass, and distributed mass. You cannot apply radiation for thermal studies. You cannot use the Split tab to apply loads to a section of a face.|
|Orthotropic material||For 2D axi-symmetric problems, you cannot select an axis as the reference geometry for defining orthotropic material directions. You can only use a plane as the reference geometry.|
