Custom fastener's?? Plant 3D 2013

Is there possible to make custom fasteners? I need to make custom collar but there ain't any options for fasteners.

 

Plant #d Parametric Graphics has almost what I wan't in StupEnd-category (Welding nec collar) but I need the connection point behind the collar sheet thickness not in front.

 

Example in attachment

Hi, sorry if I don´t understand you but I see a single StuB-End and a single Lap Joint Flange.

 

Make a StuB-End with one face as (PSW, BV...) for rear Port and front port as LAP on right possition

 

Make a Single Lapped Flange with a Port as LAP and the front as FL.

 

That is a Lapped Flange with Collar.

Yes.

 

I understand how it works.

 

The problem is that Port 1 is in wrong place. Collar should bee "extend", not as standard Plant 3D collar. There is similar collars what I need in catalog (weld neck collar) but the Port 1 is in wrong place as shown in attachment. Collar section should bee between flanges but weld should come after the lapped flange. Now lapped flange and collar overlap each other if you can understand what I mean.

Have you had any luck resolving your issue yet?

 

If not, have you also tried adjusting the "I" engagement length?
