bolt in NX


Hi, can anyone help me with a simulation in Siemens NX. I have a 3 mm thick abs solid with three holes for the axle and two bolts. I want to bolt this 5V Stepper Motormotor to the solid and see how the plastic behaves.
I have made a placeholder for the motor, and an OK with assuming that the motor and bolts will be a lot stronger than the plastic.
How do I define a connection between the motor and the abs-plate?
TL:DR How to simulate bolts in Simens NX?
