Floating Fastener Assembly with Float

To evaluate the worst case scenario considering fastener float:

  • In the PropertyManager, select Float fasteners and pins under Analysis Parameters.

    The worst case minimum decreases to 46 while the worst case maximum increases to 54. The total range of 8mm is double the range for when TolAnalyst did not consider fastener float.

To achieve the worst case minimum result, TolAnalyst simulates the parts as described in the procedure where float is not considered. See Floating Fastener Assembly without Float. When the parts are assembled, the axle supports are pushed up against the inside faces of the top plate's clearance holes, and to the outside faces of the axle supports' clearance holes, resulting in a worst case minimum of 46.
