Getting force and displacement data

Hello fellow CAD'ers,

I have had a problem for a while trying to get raw force and displacement data from a generative structural analysis case. I performed a static case analysis and then made sensors for both force and displacement.

It seems like the sensors only work if you take either the minimum, maximum or average values. I was able to export this data. But what I really need is the force and displacement at various points of time. That way, I can see how the rate of displacement changes. I suppose then I need to export some time data. Not sure if that's possible.

It would be cool if one of you has a possible solution for this!
