Simulation: Factor of safety plot?


New member
Hi, i don't understand one of the two options for a factor of safety plot. When you choose "areas below factor of safety", you see in red where the model is in danger. This is clear.

But when I use the option "factor of safety distribution" I get an almost totally red picture, with a scale I don't understand. What am I seeing here? Why is the whole model red?

It would be great if anyone could shed some light on this, thanks!
