How to visually check the joint model works correctly

Sometimes, having a complex joint model, it is good to have some simple method of finding how the model works: you can visually check the FEM analysis deformation behavior to make sure that your analysis and code-check was correct. 

After calculation, you can go to the Check tab, turn on Equivalent stress, Mesh and Deformed shape and overscale the deformed shape to see that all works well.
