    interference detection for fastener evaluation

    Derek Eldridge

      I'm trying to find a way to perform an interference detection on an assy. My goal is not only to find parts that interfere, but also:

      • Screws don't align with holes
      • Screws are too long for holes
      • Screws are wrong size for holes.

      I use cosmetic threads, tap drill diameter or cosmetic thread on all my holes. For the evaluation, I would imagine that it would be better to have Remove thread for all the tapped holes to properly evaluate.


      I'm open to alternative methods, but I'm thinking of the following:

      Is there a way in a macro, that i can have it crawl through all the parts, change all hole wizards settings to Remove Threads and perform the evaluation. Then after, I would need to do the same in revers to change them all back to cosmetic threads.
