Hi,

I hope @OliverGräbner can answer your question.

Hi Daniel,

 

it is not possible to assemble two nut/washers in one step.

 

But of course you can assemble a nut together with a washer instead of a screw. 

Follow this link to see how you can add a second nut.  Similarly you can add a nut instead of a screw on the first position.

NOTE: The nut is not really connected to the first assembled screw. If you change the diameter of the first screw, you have to 'update' the diameter for the second nut manually.

 

Regards,
Oli

If IFX cannot do this, you could build a UDF Family Table. If the material thickness changes or the depth of the rear counterbore changes you could use flexibility to also make that work.

I have created the ifx table with internal code of factory.

I have the family table with screw or nut or washer, when i want insert into a assembly one nut or washer I use family table because with ifx is not possible insert one object.

The ifx code of nut ,washer and screw is connected with Family table when I insert one of it
