3D bolt & nut

Recommended Posts


Could you explain a little further? When I pull up the mode bar options, none of the settings appear to control 3D visibility. I'm using the Bolt & Nut - Inch tool found in the "Machine Design" of VW Designer. From the manuals, I know it's possible and readily done, but I seem unable to reproduce those results.

If I go to the Machine Design workspace, I don't seem to have a tool called "Bolt & Nut-Inch".

I've got a bunch of different bolts ("I", "J", etc) and a "Fastener Tool" which has Modes for 2D or 3D, selections for ISO, DIN etc, and controls for turning on and of various Head, Nut and Washer options. It's pretty cool really.

But once you've chosen either a 2D or a 3D version, you dont seem to be able to change that.

What pallette is your bolt-inch tool under?
