    A quick tip on Bolted Connections in Autodesk Inventor.

    A little time saving tip if you intend to use the same bolted connection more than once, why not create a “Bolted Connection Set”. A Bolted Connection Set is a pre-defined bolted connection assembly that you can save and reuse.

    A bolted Connection set can even be used in areas where a longer or shorter bolt is required (as long as it is available in the standard being used)

    Here’s how to set it up:

    • Open your assembly.
    • Navigate to Design Tab and click Bolted Connection.

    • Click on the two arrows (>>) at the bottom right-hand corner to expand the dialog

    • Set up the Bolted Connection that you want to reuse, and click Add

    • Finally, when in your assembly, select the location you want to place your preset bolted connection, and simply click Set


    That’s it, a quick and simple tip that will increase your efficiency and productivity.
