I am trying to add bolts to a steel tank structure, and I am sure there is a faster more efficient way ( I hope ) to do this.
I have added a render of the tank with some bolts in it.
Each panel is bolted together ( shown )
and angles offset bolted to the panels ( shown with partal bolting )
Currently I have had to rotate the entire model, then add bolts/holes
for each of the panels, which wasn't too bad.
but for the angles... each angle has 21 holes and there are 8 angles, and rotating the model
168 times and adding a couple bolts ( top and bottom angles ) is just not good.
I have tried coping bolts but they do not rotate.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunatly to keep all the 'intelligent' data, I have to rotate the model for each bolt...
If there is a repetitive detail, I usually add bolts to that element and copy that element with bolts around. Then I just use adapt bolts.
