Good morning guys,
I have a small project requiring the use of threaded rod/bar for my assembly. We use alot of this here with fabricated assemblies for bolting steel together. What I normally do is just extrude a circle off a face within the part and put cosmetics threads on it for illustration but then its in with the part itself and cannot be moved around like a standard bolt can be with mating etc in the assembly.
I'm wondering if there is a library part out there for this which will allow me (for future projects) to simply choose the length, diameter/thread size like you normally would for a bolt in the design library. I don't see anything in there short of modifying a bolt by cutting the head off it and saving it as a new library part. I haven't practiced with putting threads on parts yet, so making this part from scratch with threads may not be the best way for me to get what I need if there is already something online that I can just download. Just curious. Thanks in advance.
