Does using parts (such as nuts/bolts) with many configurations slow down the assembly they are used in?

Hi all,

 

I am curious as to whether using a part - such as a nut, bolt or bearing - with various thread sizes and lengths contained within the part file as configurations will slow down an assembly they are used within?

The aim of having many configurations would be to reduce the number of part files saved in our DDM.

 

The alternative is to have many individual parts saved in our DDM of the individual sizes, however this seems like a more clunky alternative.

 

Thanks in advance,

Matt
