    This class covers the use of bolted connections, joints, rigid elements, and other element types to link parts within multi-body assemblies inside Autodesk Nastran In-CAD and Simulation Mechanical.  Several models will be displayed to highlight the differences between solid and idealized connectors, and how each approach can affect the results. 

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the differences between various connectors
    • Understand the limitations of using connectors over solid modeled components
    • Learn how to use automated connectors like Bolted Connections
    • Develop skills to construct connectors manually
