A force is a push or a pull in a particular direction on a part, and is a type of load.
Forces can be applied to a point, edge, face, or hole center.
Once applied, distributed forces on certain types of features can be converted to bearing forces or traction forces.

active : Bool¶
Returns or sets the object activeness.
Setting this on or off sets all children. Setting to True sets all the parents active too.
color : Color¶
The color assigned to the Boundary Condition.
connectionRadius : Double (units=”length”)¶
The search radius for the Boundary Condition.
connectionType : Enum (rigid, flexible)¶
The type of the connection. Valid choices are:
direction : Direction¶
Returns the direction vector of the entity.
distributed : Bool¶
Returns whether the applied boundary condition is distributed or not.
Boundary conditions applied across the entire feature area (for faces) or length (for edges) are distributed and at a single point boundary conditions are non-distributed.
features : Attribute¶
Returns a list of features the entity is applied to.
localToPart : Bool¶
Returns or sets ‘Rotate with part’.
It makes boundary condition not to rotate or rotate along with its associated part.
location : Location (units=”length”)¶
Returns the location of the entity.
magnitude : Double (units=”force”)¶
The magnitude of the force.
mode : Enum (direction, components)¶
Specifies the mode of the boundary condition.
Valid choices are:
name : Attribute¶
Returns or sets the name of the object.
It can be any text string, including spaces, although it’s best to avoid using the following characters: ” ‘ * ? and $.
While these characters are allowed, they could create difficulties when you export the model to other applications.
part : Attribute¶
Returns the part on which the entity is applied graphically.
parts : Attribute¶
Returns a list of parts on which the entity is applied on.
visible : Bool¶
Determines whether the Boundary Condition is visible or not.
