Control IFX screws dimension by parameter

I have a few part family parts, that change the hole dimension according to the need.

So I have a few IFX screws, that needs to change the size of the screw from M8 to M10, and be adjusted according the part family. Actually IFX only updates the screw manually, and not update automatically by the size of holes of the part.

 

Any idea to update the screws automatically and according the family part?

Hi,

 

this is indeed not possible with IFX.

Some information is stored in component parameter on the screw fastener component.

If you try to change the model, you also have to take care that the parameters are updated.

 

The next problem you have is the length of the screw. 

Not only the diameter might change, also a change of the screw length might be required.

 

We recommend to use the 'Check Screws' Dialog to review all your screws after changes to your model.

Assemble the screws should always be the last step.
