I have some problems with Bolt Connection Component Generator. For placement I choose Concentric, i choose all references, but I can't select Diameter. It is stuck to 10mm and i can't change it.

Am i doing it wrong or what?

I am using Inventor Profesional 2013

Thanks for answers

The ENABLE CALCULATION button, upper right just under the X, is selected.


This just happened to me and I couldn't change hole size even though the choice was "by hole". Even though my hole in the parts was #8, the bolted connection wizard was stuck at #2 until I unselected calculations.


Unselect calculations and then you should be able to select a new size.


Oddly, now that I've unselected it, and created a bolted connection, I can't seem to duplicate the problem, even after creating a new assembly.
