Adding Bolts

Bolts are added to a model using either the Add Single Bolt option or the Add Bolt Pattern option. Bolt patterns can also be created with the Sequence Designer dialog.

Bolt properties are defined with the Define Bolts option. The following bolt models are available in RS3:

Bolt properties can be assigned to bolts when they are initially added to the model or with the Assign Properties dialog.

Bolt Staging

The staging sequence of bolt installation can be specified when bolts are initially added. If bolts are not initially installed at the desired stage, the staging can be changed at any later time using the Assign options. Bolt staging can also be assigned with the Sequence Designer dialog.
