I'm not sure how to upload my example. I'll have to figure it out how if needed. Anyway, I am trying to model an angle clip attached to an I-Beam and C Channel. The clip has a slotted hole created using Hole Wizard and the I-Beam and C Channel has another hole created using Hole Wizard as well. The holes need to overlap each other. My problem here is if I use Smart Fasteners two issues can occur. 1. If I choose the slotted hole on top, the back side with the nut doesn't recognize the channel and shows the nut going through the C Channel or I-Beam. 2. If I choose the hole in the C-Channel or I-Beam, the back end matches fine however the head of the bolt is shown going through the slot inside of the clip.
