    Error when using bolted connection bigger than 50mm

    David Gimenez

      Dear all,

       

      I am a Solidworks 2009 user and when I apply a bolted connection bigger than 50mm in simulation, the following message appears: "The bolt diameter appears to be large. Please check to make sure it is correct". The second time I accept this connection the message does not appear but the program does not apply any load and restrain. There is a restriction in the bolt size for this kid of connection? There is any way to increase the bolt connector size?

       

      Also when I apply a bolt connector with “Tight fit” faces, the connector do not apply loads. Is this normal?

       

      Regards,

      David
