This is a 2 part question.
1: Is it possible to create a smart fastener from an assembly?
I use a common config of a bolt and 2 washers in a large assembly and would like to fill the required holes with all 3 parts as 1 but still keep them individual items for the BOM.
2: Is it possible to save a 3rd party imported part(*.SAT) as a smart fastener? For the same reason as above but this is a sheetmetal crinch nut that I downloaded from the suppliers website.
If it is possible, how does one define the location faces for mating?
In the assembly, try, add component(s), feature driven.
Locate the the small parts in the "primary" hole of a pattern. then use the "pattern" to drive the location of the new parts. If the pattern changes so does the bolt and washers. BOM should reflect individual parts
