Hello everybody.
After the Solidworks Simulation Training I am trying to step into the Contact Analysis a little deeper. I am referring to the file attached.
I have a pliers which squeezes a flat stock. During the training lesson the teacher said we are not interested in the contact stresses that develop between the arm and the hinge pin, nor we are interested in the contact stresses between the arms and the piece of flat stock.
Well this is exactly what I am trying to do. If I set contact between components and I run the analysis nothing appears on the flat stock.
I have tried many options but no results.
Could someone help me? Thank you
