Is it possible to model the pullout and /or torque out force for a molded in insert in ANSYS? The insert will be 1/2-13 brass or stainless steel the plastic part would be PP and correctly designed with sufficient boss material around it to support the insert. Do you model the knurl and grooves as well? This seems like it would be required, but wouldn't it also add a great deal of complexity to the computation?(see picture below)
