Bolted Connections

Hi Guys,

I am experiencing a little problem with bolted connection that is causing big trouble really.

A part is attached to same channel on both ends - bolted connection works fine for one end but on other end it doesn't pick the circular reference. have tried placing/constraining it again and again but same result..


Any reason why??

Is the end that doesn't work a derived part?

Hi Sajid,

Maybe it is related to the dataset you have. So could you attach the dataset? That will help us for further investigation.

Maybe the angle between the 2 plates used for the BC are not parallel?

4 months later and I'm having (and have-had, intermittently) the same issue!

I filled out a CSR and in the reply they've included a link to the DG.  So, here I am only to find that nobody jumped in here and picked up the ball.

Is it answered somewhere else?  That's entirely possible... we all know there are too many entries to effectively search, right? :smileywink:

In my last CSR (yesterday), I hit the Autodesk Support people with a list of suggestions.  I've been told that they are working on "something big" concerning support so, hang in there everybody!
