Allow Intelligent Fastener Extension (IFX) to assemble Nut only

Allow Intelligent Fastener Extension (IFX) to assemble Nut only

Hello,

In Intelligent Fastener Extension, in some cases users need to assembles nuts only without screws.
This is the case for example for welted nuts of norm "DIN 929" (please see Screenshot).


Can you please allow to assemble nuts only so these case are covered by IFX too?

Nearly the same idea was already posted. 

Possibility to add only nut(s) and/or ring(s) in I... - PTC Community

 

Sounds like an good idea.

 

At the moment you simply can assemble only the nut as kind of a screw.

Here are the steps to do this:

 

1. Add a new catalog for welded nuts

2. Create all nuts upfront. Do not create it on the fly

3. Copy your existing *.dat file for your nuts and change it to SCREWTYP 99

4. Add your new copied *.dat file to the new catalog for welded nuts.

 

Now you should be able to assemble the nut as a screw.

If you need more information or assistance, please give me feedback.

Hello,

thanks for your feedback Oliver. i vote for your idea.
thanks for the customization idea, i already use Something similar for the "2nd nut" need, i declare them as custom washers.
Our users asked for this because they have the case of 1 screw with 2 nuts (and in a basic IFX its not possible)

have a great day!
