Create connections between parts of your model.

Connectors define which parts of a model have to be fastened to each other and how the connections have to be performed.

Connectors are geometric entities (not FE) used to create connections between components. Connectors are used to realize FE idealizations of the physical connection. Just as you create an FE mesh on a surface, you create FE connections by realizing a connector.

In HyperMesh, connectors can take into account the mechanical and structural conditions of the model.

Connectors, in the form of mass connectors, are used to distribute masses on certain areas in a model. These connectors define both the area and the type of mass in such cases.
