Does Simulation have a setting for simulating set screws, or do I need to use the Tool box or separate resultant force/torque representation? Thx!

Question asked by Chris Marquis on Aug 14, 2019

Is there a manner to simulate a bolted contact for a set screw? Maybe I'm overlooking an easy setting, but it appears the bolted contacts all assume that the bolt has a head and goes through a clearance hole in one part and into threads on another part or an opposing nut.  What I want to do is see if something in the bolted contact options can simulate a set screw through a threaded round part that is pressing on a round shaft.  It may be that using a Toolbox set screw or resultant force/torque inputs as added external inputs is the only reasonable way at present.  Thanks!
