Enhancements for connectors include improved accuracy for the edge weld connector, support of all connectors (except bolt and elastic support) for linear dynamic studies, and creation of a bolt or pin connector on the same component.

  • The calculation of the weld sizes for the edge weld connector is more accurate due to the improvement of the bonding algorithm between shell edges and faces.
  • All connectors, except the bolt connector and the elastic support, are supported in Linear Dynamic studies.
  • You can import a frequency study with connectors to a new linear dynamic study.
  • You can create a pin or a bolt connector by selecting cylindrical faces or edges of the same component.
