Is your rotor a selectable wall zone in the force report? If so, you can simply
select it and there your go. Depending upon how the bearing was loaded, i.e. via
applied force or applied eccentricity, and in what direction, the output forces may be
either in the fixed frame (fx,fy) or the rotating frame (fr,ft).
