## Analysis Lesson 6: SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation Mechanical Scenario Creation

From SOLIDWORKS, save an assembly to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Launch the Mechanical Scenario Creation App with the Abaqus solver to create two virtual bolt connectors with nuts. Create a Surface-Based contact. Surface-Based contact defines the interaction behavior between two discrete surface regions in the model.
