Could someone please advise me what the lightening symbol means next to a bolted connection in an assembly.  Is it an error or nothing to worry about.  See attached JPG screen grab.

Something in your assembly has changed, and the Bolted connection is telling you it wants to be updated.


Right click on the Bolted connection and chose 'Edit with Bolted connection generator', Check the inputs and if all is well, just close the generator agin to update the Bolted connection.

Also try using the rebuild all command in the manage tab on the ribbon.
