Brief info:

The above two plates are connected with a bolt & nut,The above slots are co-axial slots.


In-order to define the above condition in SolidWorks Simulation, I am using bolt connector but unable to define the connection at the central axis of the slots(bcoz the slot faces are flat at the connection region).


In fabrication exactly same is done, So kindly letme know how to create the similar set-up in SolidWorks Simulation?


I cannot replace the slots with holes (Bcoz slots are provided as manufacturing tolerence stack-up for ease of installation at the site)


Please provide me any solution or work around.


I acknowledge valuble suggestions from you all.
