Hello,
I imported the stl file of the L4 vertebrae from Anybody using local coordinates and used this geometry in Ansys.
I then read the boundary condition files in Ansys and I got some "spikes" coming out of the L4 vertebrae. I don't know if it's because of the APDL template because I only changed the db file name following the example in the tutorials for the clavicle.
I have attached an image of how the vertebrae looks like after reading the load files from AnyBody.
Could you know what is the cause of this? I also noticed some forced are not on the surface of the vertebrae as I expected.

Thanks,
Victor.
