I wanted to know if Z88Aurora can calculate the gravitational deflection of an object under its own weight.
So far, the deflection was done by using the program PLOP:

I did some simulations and comparative noticed that there is a very big difference between the results obtained - Z88Aurora max deviation is 11,9nm while PLOP 1,73nm.

Both objects have the same dimensional parameters.
In Z88Aurora position,, surface load "choose 20 because the weight of the mirror is approx. 2,1kg x gravity 9.81 = 20N ...... I do not know whether it is correctly entered data .....
If this can not be calculated in this way please advice which function to use the results were most similar in comparison to the calculations of deformations under the influence of gravity.
