is there a method of drilling countersunk Holes on ASD and still be shown and Bolts inserted as Countersunk?

I don't think so and that is a huge problem for getting my architectural approvals.  They see a hex head bolt instead of a countersunk screw and throw a fit.  Even if I have it tagged correctly.

Same issue here.  I would like to see additional fastener grades also, like... 18-8 for stainless, Grade-8, etc... Plus some anchorage would be great!! Like wedge and sleeve anchors. 

 

While I'm at it :smileytongue: tapped holes!!!!

FYI...  McMaster Carr offers 3D models of screws and such.  I abuse that!

What I do is Specify on the Bolt Discription that the hole must be Countersink and that details comes out on the detail Drawing.

 

I accept your set screws.

 

How can I load them to the library of ASD.

this will be seen as 3D solid by ASD and doesn't drill the profile and enter properties of Drilled hole.

correct...  it mearly saves you the time of creating a 3D model of a flat head screw to start with, which ASD does not do.

 

But did you just claim to make ASD draw a produce a countersunk hole in the model?  I have not been able to produce that.  Just tag it as so, with the detail wrong.
