Create Attachments from Features: Nodes

Create attachments from features for nodes.

This option lets you define a node, or series of nodes explicitly as an attachment. This use case is for capturing difficult geometry as attachments, or for defining the center node of a pre-existing rigid spider as an attachment. These attachments support a Name and will push the name to the 10th field of the node for OptiStruct and Nastran.
