Create a Bolted Connection Library

For those of you using Inventor's Bolted Connection, it might be useful to know that there is a Templates Library feature within Bolted Connection to store away your regularly used fastener arrangements. See the steps below:
  • Insert a Bolted Connection as normal, selecting the arrangements of Bolts, Nuts and Washers etc. Then click the >> button at the bottom, if it is not already. Select Add to put your arrangement into the Template Library.

  • Next give it a descriptive name, remember you could get a long list of Templates, so try to make it as obvious as possible what each Template contains. Click OK to complete.

  • Your new Template will appear, so next time, instead of having to pick each fastener, simply select the Template you wish to use and hit Set in Templates Library area.
