Bolted connections in Mechanica

Does anyone know how to set up a bolted connection using the fastener feature in Mechanica? I've read the help topics about setting these up, and keep getting "point must lie on planar surfaces" errors. Tool doesn't seem to accept any 2 points I set up or any 2 of the bolt hole edges. What 2 references does this tool need??? Any help is much appreciated!!!

Re: Bolted connections in Mechanica

So you have to have a model of the bolt? I suppose that would explain my difficulties if so... ...I would have thought 2 holes would be enough info
