Millipede Area/Region loading

How does one use the Load Region component? I can’t seem to get it to work, i.e. it doesn’t seem to have any effect on deflection.

I was expecting something like me using a closed curve and placing some number into the Area Load input and the plugin interpolates the data, but apparently, it doesn’t work that way and it takes a vector instead of a number.

I’ve tried things like Divide Surface > Use the points as origins for the downward vectors, directly inputting the vectors into any of the inputs, etc.

Also tried the 2D Load region component.

Neither component worked.

Both Point Load and the Linear load input to Frame Curves however are working.

Have you tried giving the load region a Brep for the boundary of the input?
