Question Apply a moment when using cyclic symmetry in Static Structural

madman1556 is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to simulate a set of spur gears (see figures). To save some computation time I wanted to use the cyclic region symmetry. But when I now want to add the moment loading condition, I encounter some problems:
  • First the Geometry selection is not possible anymore
  • So I added a remote point, where I used the surface as geometry, but I'm not able to select that remote point for applying the moment. Some figures to state the problem:Definition_Remote_point.jpgCan't_select_point1.jpg

Has anyone encountered the same problem or know how to solve this?
Thanks in advance

(I'm using ansys 17.2)
