I have some members in my frame generator model which i have used the Hole feature.I used a ANSI Metric M Profile size 14 thread hole (11.836mm) in the members of the frame generator model.The flat metal bar being bolted to the frame generated model has a 12mm sized Hole.How do i select the correct size Washer & Bolt from the Content Centre to match the correct ANSI Metric M Profile size 14 thread hole (11.836mm) and 12mm Hole ?

 

Cheers

Terry,

What I have found is once you have the bolt placed iof you go back to CC and select the washer and hover over the location where you are placing it, it automatically detects the size for you.  But if for some reason it doesn't give you the correct size you can place it then RC on it in the browser and select "Change size".

Hope this helps.
