Hello all, is there a way to enter the translational and rotational stiffness (e.g. at anchors) in terms of the local coordinate system (i.e. along the compound angle of a pipe run)? Thank you.

  • You could  try using a combination of supports at the anchor point. Each with it's own stiffness and direction. For example up to 4 guides and 2 line stops. Rotation would be a problem since these supports are in global directions, but you could define inclined directions parallel to the pipe.
