“We can do this the easy way, or the hard way”. This line can be found in movies like 1964 hit Goldfinger and many modern favorites from Gone in Sixty Seconds, Little Man, Night at the Museum and my personal favorite Blindside.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation will allow you to do some things the hard way but often there is an easy way. Specifically SOLIDWORKS connectors are purpose built to allow you to simulate connections between components with easy to understand and use options. Of course you can do many of these without connectors but that would be choosing the “Hard way”. Let’s review these connectors and discuss their use.
