How to create a sliding connection ( Bolt)

Question asked by Garrett Ford on Apr 12, 2012

Hello to all,


I am trying to run a simulation (Static) on an assembly that consists of a force acting on a tool that is held in place by a bolt going through a holder.  Currently the bolt is failing during use.  As of right now i'm using the global bonded contacts which is trying to keep the bolt and washer together.  This is causing all of the stress to go to the bolt head and shaft which i'm not sure is the actual case.  Is it possible to give the bolt the ability to slide back as the force is being put onto the tool.
