I recently got the standard parts library up and running. I can use the fastener system to place screws in assemblies automatically.
However, I cannot seem to get it to find any #12 or #10 Socket Head Cap Screws. It finds #8's and 1/4-20's just fine. The #12 and #10s never made it into the library.
How does the Standard Parts library decide which parts to generate? Is there a file somewhere telling it the dimensions (counter-bore diameter and depth, thread length, pitch, etc...)? I would like to add #12 and #10 screws to the list with as little hassle as possible.
I can find #10s in my standard parts listing under SHCPs but not #12s. Under binding head screws I can find 10s and 12s. The binding head category even goes as small as #0000-160! Which is not pertinent to this discussion whatsoever but I find it interesting.
I looked at a common vendor's website - McMaster-Carr and they only list 12-24s in the socket head category.
12s are rather uncommon so maybe they just got left out of the standard parts.
