I want to create mesh of bolt and nut with brick element. In literature one procedure is given for meshing helical thread. Bolt mesh is created by translation and rotation(with eccentricity) of 2D plane nodes. I have created nodes at different axial planes but How to connect these nodes to create Hexahedral elements?


The literature can be referred from the following link



Thanks in advance

To generate hexahedral element you can use 3d Page : Drag, line drag, spin commands (manual method 2d to 3d) or Solid map : one volume or multisolid by converting solid in mappable solid(Automtaic approach)

Literature shared by you shows mesh generated using manual method.
