    Premium Static Simulation,

    Gregory Wheldon



      I'm doing a load a simulation study - static using solidworks 2015 - Premium.

      The study works on single components, but fails on the assembly.

      There are no interferences in the assembly.


      The failure is on a pivot\hinge connection in the assembly.


      Where can I find further details\guidance on the connections types and when to use them?
      The assembly has been produced by adding components using mates ect - would it be better using more sub-assemblies?

      and do I need to use connections between two components that have been assembled using mates ?
