Tabulated loadcases in Mechanica

Tabulated loadcases in Mechanica

Mechanica (sorry, Creo Simulate) is becoming increasingly capable of handling large, complex models.  However, its use is limited by the ability to simply,  quickly and clearly enter and manage large numbers of loads and loadcases.

It would be useful to have the facility to enter loads in a tabulated form, ideally with seamless editing via Excel or similar.  This would make it easier to enter review a large number of different loadcases, and thus reduce the likelihood of mistakes as well as saving time setting up the model (as only one load would be needed for each interface feature).

At present, applying different values for each of a set of loads for multiple loadcases results in a very crowded screen, where it is nearly impossible to see the value of each load and difficult to select the correct one.  Placing all the loads in a table would make this much clearer.

We are also looking for a solution to apply a thermal load calculated by an external raytracing program into Creo Simulate. Obviously Creo lacks that useful function and there seems no practicable workaround since years. How does PTC want to be competitive with other FEA solutions?

For our application this is a real showstopper and we have to use another program. Every solution proposed by the hotline was so time consuming and difficult to use (danger of making errors).

On the other hand it sounds quite simple to allow Simulate to import load data generated in excel or using a csv.v So why is PTC not doing it? Has anyone an idea?
