We are beginning to create our custom tool box on our server, and im curious how others have gone about it. Right now we have a generic fastener, say Hex Head cap screw. inside that part are multiple configurations with derived parts (from Mcmaster) of different thread sizes, within the different thread size configurations there are derived configurations of different length with more derived parts (from Mcmaster).
another possible way of going about it is having a single part say 6-32 Hex Head cap screw and in the configurations are all the different lengths. using 1 derived part.
but this way there will be 6-32, 8-32, 10-32 individual parts.
is there any benefit 1 over the other? i feel like there has to be a con using all the derived parts the first option will take.
