Add custom fastener to smart fastener list

Question asked by Jeff Sloop on Nov 17, 2016

Is there a way to add custom fastener to the list of automatic fasteners used by the Smart Fastener command?  I know I can add custom fasteners to the toolbox, but I wish to do more than that.

 

For example, I would like to be able to click on a dowel hole made by the hole wizard and have the smart fastener command add a dowel of appropriate size.  Dowels are part of the standard toolbox library but they are not included in the smart fastener section.  Is there a way to add them?  I would also like to do the same with helicoils, etc.

 

This could be a tremendous time saver if Solidworks is compatible with it.  I just can't figure out how to do it.

Thank you for any ideas you may have!
