Hello, Civil Engineers! Today, we'll explore how to view multiple loads simultaneously in MIDAS CIVIL NX.

Many of you have been curious about displaying various loads on the screen at the same time. Today, I’m excited to share the solution to this.


Question of the Day : "Is there a way to see Load Case 1 point loads and Load Case 2 uniformly distributed loads simultaneously?"


Don't worry. We've got you covered!

If you go to the Load tab in Display, you can display all the desired loads on the screen at once.


First, let's look at an example of an underground structure. It has various loads applied, and I wanted to see the top and bottom water pressures simultaneously.

Open MIDAS CIVIL NX and go to the View tab > Display. Then, navigate to the Load tab, and a window like this will appear.

Here, you can select the loads you want. For instance, if you choose Pressure Load and Beam Load and click the OK button, both loads will be displayed on the screen.

If you want to check a specific Load group separately, select Group Selection, and click the '...' button on the right to open the Select Load Group window.

There, choose the Load group you desire and press OK, and only that group will be activated and visible.

Pretty simple, right?

This way, you can easily view complex-looking loads at a glance.

TA-DA! Here’s the result. You can easily see the loads acting on the top and bottom, can't you?
