Annotate Plate Stresses (Mx, My, Mxy, SQx, SQy)

Within the Annotation Menu, could you include Plates Stresses & Nodal Forces ?

This will be very useful to display specific plate /nodal results during compilation of Structural reports. Given that the contours only show a range of values. This range could be very large sometimes a bit general.

Please incorporate additional Tabs to:

  1. Annotate plates center stresses results (Mx, My , Mxy, SQx, SQy) and an option of "drop down filter" to display these results for "at least one" user selected Load case

  2. Also, Add a new tab to annotate "Element nodal forces" ( currently this is only available through PRINT ELEMENT FORCES). This would display the "total contribution" of all forces in Global direction from surrounding/adjacent plates which are connected to that specific node.

    You are welcome Carlos. It would definitely be great to include Solids too. Thanks

    Thank you for providing this idea. Yes, this seems like a reasonable addition to compliment the other methods provided for nodes, beams and reactions. I would also say that this idea should also include solids too. This will be added to the backlog.
