Sets options that control how the software creates fastener openings in the model. Two placement modes are available: Equal Spacing and Unequal Spacing. The mode that you select determines which options must be defined for the software.

Fastener Type

Select the type of fastener you want to place in the model. The list displays the previous fastener that was selected. To view all of the fasteners that are in the catalog, click More to open the Select Equipment Dialog Box.

Select Configuration

Displays the Fastener Details dialog box so that you can provide the information necessary to let the software determine the standard fasteners from the catalog that best meet your requirements. This option is only available after you select the object to which the fasteners are associated. For more information, see Fastener Details Dialog Box.

Preview

Displays an image that illustrates fastener placement on the flange based on the selected placement mode and the corresponding distance or spacing values that you have defined.

Distance from Edges

Along Length

Specifies the Start and End distances from the edge that fastener openings are to be placed along the length of the flange. These distances are represented as Start Length and End Length in the diagram below.

Along Width

Specifies the Start and End distances from the edge that fastener openings are to be placed along the width of the flange. These distances are represented as Start Width and End Width in the diagram below.

Placement Data

Mode

Equal Spacing

Places equidistant fasteners on the flange so that they are equidistant from one another. This option requires that you also specify a value for No. of Fasteners. The distance between each flange is calculated based upon the location of the first fastener opening and the defined Along Length distances.

Unequal Spacing

Places fastener openings on the flange as required based upon the spacing details that you define. Selecting this option also requires that you define values for Start Setup Spacing, End Setup Spacing, and Intermediate Spacing.

No. of Fasteners

Specifies the number of fasteners to be placed on the flange. This option is available only when Equal Spacing is the selected placement mode.

Spacing Details

Start Setout Spacing

Specifies the distance between the first and second fastener openings on the flange. This distance is represented by SSS in the diagram below. This option is available only when Unequal Spacing is the selected placement mode.

End Setout Spacing

Specifies the distance between the last two fastener openings placed on the flange. This distance is represented by ESS in the diagram below. This option is available only when Unequal Spacing is the selected placement mode.

Intermediate Spacing

Specifies the distance between the intermediate fastener openings. That is, the fastener openings that are placed between the first and last fastener on the flange. This distance is represented by IS in the diagram below. This option is available only when Unequal Spacing is the selected placement mode.
