For the collision check the body is calculated in the following way:
- get the middle point of the bolt
- get the body at the middle point.
The body is composed from 6 bodies:
Top Tool Diameter
= it is taken from the database (AstorBase - Tools) if it exists, otherwise is calculated based on the formula:
bolt diameter * DataBase Default( Pattern_ToolDiameter
Bottom Tool Diameter
= is taken from the database (AstorBase - Tools) if it exists, otherwise is calculated based on formula:
bolt diameter * DataBase Default ( Pattern_ToolDiameter
= grip length (Bolt - Advance Steel
Properties - Length).
Top Bolt Diameter
and Bottom Bolt Diameter
are equal (= bolt diameter).
In case a collision between a bolt and any other object is found, try to revert the bolt direction and check again. It is possible that the bolt does not interfere anymore with the object.
Calculated Body of the bolt is used for intersection with every body of the object from the model. If it is intersected with another body, it calculates the intersection body.
The dimensions (height, diameter) of the washers and nuts are in AstorBase - SetNutsBolts, and for Tool are in AstorBase - Tools. These dimensions depend on the definition of the bolts (AstorBase - SetOfBolts).
