Bearing connection Vs Revolute joint

      Let's say that I have two body with bearing connection. One is deformable and another is rigid body.nI am defining the cotact between them using revolute joint by keeping 1 DOF free. nUnfortunately I am unable to create bearing connection using 'Bearing' tool. I tried the way which is given in manual but its not working. Can somebody help?nSecondly, is there any difference in Bearing connection and Revolute joint?n

      ,nBearing connection allows for a non-linear coupling between the stiffness's in X and Y directions, mainly used for rotor-dynamics simulations. Given that, if you are not interested in rotor-dynamics, you should use the Revolute joint. Choose a body to body revolute joint and scope the respective surfaces under reference and mobile bodynRegards,nIshan. n
