  1. In "Apply supports", only displacements (Ux, Uy, Uz) can be constrained, as shown in the below image. But how to apply rotational constraints (Rx, Ry, Rz)??
  2. Hi, i have two questions: 1: is it possible to do cables in Inspire? I want to optimize nodes that are part of the substructure of a table that works with cables made of twisted steel-wire, so the cables should take no buckling and only tension should aplly on them, how could i do that in Inspire? i tried via the custom material settings by changing the materials properties, but without satisfying results. 2: can i do custom supports that allow the table legs to not move in negative z-direction (because the floor stops them), but that can move upwards in positive z-direction and in x and y? because for now i can only block the z-movement both up- and downwards at the same time, not in particular. i tried by not assigning supports, but only movement limitations in z-downward direction, but then the optimization would fail any help would be much appreciated! phil
  3. Hello, I am new in Inspire and I am trying to do a basic simple optimisation. What I get is an error that "the model is improperly supported" and that "the model must be supported so that is can't translate or rotate in any direction". Now, I know what this means but the problem is that I have older files where only the design space is different and the supports remain the same and I didnt have any issues. So i just dont know what it wants me to put there. I have tried to put more or less supports but i get the same error. This should be a quick optimization in order to compare the results with another software since Inspire is more reliable. I use Inspire version 9.5, build 3387. Please help. P.S. I attached two images of the older file that works and the new that doesn't.
