I am trying to model a mass hanging from a pin that goes through 4 plates. I'm looking for the stress on the plates due to the hanging mass. When I modeled it, only one plate shows to be loaded (see image 1 & 2). The plates are fixed, pendulum has concentric mate to one of the plates.
I then added concentric mates to rest of the plates and the results now show 2 plates being loaded (see image 3), why not all four?
How do I get all 4 plates to see load without adding redundant constraints? Do I use contact?
