Bolt Connection and Gravity in Simulation

Greetings,

 

I am trying to use gravity with a threaded bolt connection, but the program does not solve when both gravity and the bolt connection are active, it simply crashes. As a test case, I have created basically a cantilever beam in 2 parts that is bolted together with 4 bolt connections.

 

Thanks.
