Creating a Fasteners Folder

You can create a Fasteners folder to segregate interferences involving fasteners.

Not all interferences in the Fasteners folder are between threads. You must examine the interferences in the Fasteners folder to determine whether or not they create problems in your assembly. For example, an interference could exist between the heads of two adjacent bolts, which you need to eliminate by modifying the assembly.

To segregate fastener interferences into the Fasteners folder:

  1. In the Interference Detection PropertyManager, under Options, select Create fasteners folder.
  2. Under Selected Components, click Calculate.
    Any interferences that contain at least one component with IsFastener = 1 appear in the Fasteners folder under Results.
