Allow Intelligent Fastener Extension (IFX) to detect Cosmetic surfaces/threads

Allow Intelligent Fastener Extension (IFX) to detect Cosmetic surfaces/threads

Hello,

In many cases in our database, screws and nuts have threads modeled with the feature "COSMETIC THREAD". When assembling a screw on an existing nut for example, IFX diameter detection features fails and propose the inner solide surface diameter (which is smaller) compared to the real thread diameter located in the Cosmetic feature (see Screenshot)

Can you please allow IFX to detect cosmetic features too? Otherwise if designers are not carefull they will have assembly problems (screw diameter too small for nut…)
