Snap Hook

The Snap Hook PropertyManager appears when you create a new snap hook fastening feature. You can also create a snap hook groove for the snap hook.

The PropertyManager controls these properties:

Snap Hook Selections

  • Select a position . Select an edge or face to position the hook. The position is created as a point  in a 3D sketch and defines the center of the leading edge of the hook's base.

    To position the snap hook, do one of the following:

    • Edit the 3D sketch, then dimension the point.

    • To place the snap hook at an exact predefined location, before or after you create the snap hook, create a sketch with a point at the desired location, then select that point for Select a position .

You cannot edit the point during feature creation.

  • Define vertical direction . Select a face, edge, or axis to define the vertical direction of the hook. Select Reverse direction if necessary.

  • Define hook direction . Select a face, edge, or axis to define the direction of the hook. Select Reverse direction if necessary.

  • Select mating face for hook body (Available when you select a face for Select a position ). Select a face to which you mate the body of the hook.

 

Before mate. Hook face to mate shown.

  • Enter body height. Activates the Body Height setting under Snap Hook Data. Sets the height of the snap hook from the entity selected in Select a position to the bottom of the hook lip.

  • Select mating face (for hook bottom). Activates the Select mating face box for the bottom of the hook, and deactivates the Body height setting under Snap Hook Data.

  • Select mating face . Select a face to which you mate the bottom of the hook. The body height is automatically calculated.
