No “Compliance” under Objective in Structural Optimization

    • Hakim Dina Anjum

      I cannot choose Compliance under Objective in Structural Optimization. Is anyone familiar with the issue?

      Hello Hakim,

      Can you check the "Objective and response constraint capability map" provided in the link below:

      Apply Design Objectives and Constraints (

      The document says that, compliance is not supported for Non-linear static structural system, when using Lattice method, Level set method or Topography method. For more details on using structural optimization, kindly refer to this link:

      Thankyou. I had kept large delfection turned on, which triggered a non linear solution perhaps, turning it off solved the issue.
