Hi Everyone,


For those of you who don’t know me, I work in the Product Definition group at SolidWorks.  I’m currently gathering information regarding the SolidWorks Fastening Features (Mounting Boss, Snap Hook etc).  Since many of you on this forum are plastic part designers, I’m interested to hear your thoughts on these features.  A couple specific questions I have are:


If you’re not using the SolidWorks Fastening Features to create these kinds of features in your design, why not?


Also, if you’re not using the SolidWorks Fastening Features at all, then how are you currently creating these features (manually every time, using the Design Library etc)?


All other input is welcome as well, even if you do use them.  I look forward to hearing your feedback.
