Extracting Nodal Mass


Is there any way we can extract the masses lumped into the nodes from the conversion of Load to Masses. Where we can find this nodal masses?

The very purpose for this is to be able to extract these values and be imported into Perform 3d for Performance Based Design evaluation of the structure.
We are doing the service level performance using midas gen but will be using Perform 3d for the MCE level evaluation. 


Thank you for sending your question.
You can find the nodal masses information in the Mass Summary Table from Query > Weight/ Mass Load Table > Mass Summary Table.
Thank you.

Best regards,
