The “Support” element is an easy-to-use element which allows defining constraints between the shaft and the housing. There are five checkboxes to define in which directions the shaft is supported. For axial direction the movement to the right and to the left can be constrained independently.
A bearing offset can be defined for the three directions. An offset means that the point on the housing is moved in this direction. The resulting force on the shaft is in the direction of the offset.
