Connecting Bolts Represented as Beam Elements — Lesson 3

Since representing bolts as line bodies is computationally inexpensive, we may want to use this bolt representation when we are modeling an assembly with a large number of bolts. In this lesson, we discuss how to connect bolts represented as line bodies to the mating parts to capture the interaction between them.
