I am attempting to apply a symmetry displacement constraint to the
edges of a shell model in Workbench 8.1 using a rotated coordinate system.
Why am I getting messages that a conflict exists at a previously rotated node?

This is a limitation of Workbench at 8.1 that will be removed at 9.0. Rotated
nodes are being processed edge by edge and when an edge intersection exists
the program is attempting to rotate the node a second time.

Development suggested deleting the boundary condition on the
rotated plane and replacing it with the command snippet below.

cmsel,s,NameSele ! NameSele is a name you have given the edges
csys,12 ! The number used for the first user-defined local coordinate system
