I am saving edrawings of result plots from a bolted structure in
Cosmos. However when I save the plots as edrawings and view them
the results are different, with the min and max values for Factor
of Safety quite a lot different. It seems that edrawings cannot
deal with bolted connections so just assumes bonded surfaces.
I was under the impression that the edrawings were just a pictorial
plot of what is on the original model, but it seems to resolve the
model with bonded surfaces, rather than copying it.
I want to send the drawings to a customer but the results are
different to whats on my cosmos screen, because the assembly no
longer fails around the bolts when viewed in edrawings.
