This plug-in automatically places fasteners from the user library or Content Center.

User can connect to the application any kind of parts: normal Autodesk® Inventor® parts, parametric parts, imported from 3rd parties etc.

To place fasteners the user selects two edges (in most cases) to let the application identify the size and add them to the model.


 App Features:

  • Supports metric and inch fasteners.
  • Supports any part files and Content Center library.
  • Supports 5 different materials for each fastener item. 
  • Automatically checks the user's model for errors. For example if the user selects smooth hole Ø8mm and threaded hole M10 the appropriate warning will be dispayed.
  • Checks interference between fasteners and the model. If collision is found the fasteners will be highlighted in red color. If the user places fasteners in the hole and no clearance is left then the fasteners will be highlighted in yellow color. For example this applies when the user places M8 fastener in a hole Ø8mm.
  • Automatically enables half section view state.
  • Places fasteners inside a folder. Name of the folder can be set in settings.
  • Can place fasteners just in free model space without any constraints. 
  • Can switch between fully and partially threaded hex head bolts.
  • Can propagate fasteners on multiple faces at once.



  • The application only supports standart (coarse) thread pitch. Fine pitches are not supported.
  • For metric fasteners the application only supports recommended thread sizes: (M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10, M12, M16, M20, M24, M30, M36, M42, M48, M56, M64). It means that for the hole Ø16mm M12 bolt will be used. Optionally other sizes will be added in the next versions.

バージョン 4.0.0, 2023/05/26
- Inventor 2024 support - Added a possibility to insert the fasteners as an assembly unit. This makes the model lighter and easier to maintain. - Added jam nut and low head socket screw. - Added new fasteners combinations. - Added a possibility to hide fasteners in the selection window which are not defined by user (thus not used). - Fixed several bugs where app does not insert fasteners or does not read the Excel file.

  • Slow down performance

    As we all know, extensive use of bolt/nuts in an assembly seriously slow down the project. Do you have the option to remove (not display) threads, because I think that is the slow down feature, no?

  • Great application
