Hello everyone, there is a way to delete all the bolts of a structure, without eliminating the holes?

 

Thanks

The request to enable multiselection in "Remove bolts" command was added to the wish list to be considered in future versions of ASD.

You can hide the bolts...

Right click-> Isolate->Hide objects

Additional information to already provided by Cristian:

 

1/ Multiselection to select many or all bolts prior to "Hide objects" command can be made in Object Inspector configured to display only bolts:

2/ it is also possible to switch off the display of all bolts in Preferences:

3/ it is possible to delete bolts without deleting holes using the dedicated command "Remove bolts" - but it cannot be used for multiselection so it is necessary to remove them one by one:

4/ if your request is related only to the display of bolts on the drawings then it is possible to adjust the drawing style to do not display them

Hi,

 

Your suggestions are not usable. I need to "remove" the bolts and not to hide it! I tried to create a group of bolts and explode it....but nothing....

 

I was forced to individually delete every single bolt (~2000) in my model. You could implement the ability to set whether to link the bolts with the holes, giving the opportunity to delete them without deleting the holes!
