Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Using specialized fasteners for sheet metal in an assembly, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…Specialized fasteners that are permanently attached sheet metal…components are a common time save for assembling sheet metal parts.…Inventor has a built in library of over 1 million standard…components including studs, stand offs and other PEM brand fasteners.…Adding these fasteners to an assembly is incredibly easy, as we'll see.…There's a specialized group of tools inside of Autodesk Inventor called…design accelerators.…These design accelerators can be found under the design tab and…offer a lot of different mechanical elements.…
The one that we want to focus on today is called the Bolted Connection.…What a Bolted Connection does is it allows us to work in the context of an assembly…and add various fasteners that will hold this assembly together without having to…pre-place the holes that we normally would.…In this case what we want to do is we want to create a through connection.…We want to place this on a point.…And now begin to select how we have this built out, starting with a start plane.…So our connection will start in this top face of the blue part.…
