I am doing a nonlinear analysis of your simple cantilever example to understand how load cases are used as load steps in AnalizeNonlin WIP. I set LCase to gravity and LCase to a zero point load. In this case, I was expecting the results for LCase to be the same as those for LCase if nLoadSteps is set to 2. The file attached shows different values and so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

there seems to be a bug in the geometric non-linear analysis - sorry for the inconvenience.
You are right, the resulting values should be the same for the two load-cases.
Hi Clemens. Thanks for clarifying and no problem, I hope this helps with any future debugging.
