Smart Part Design
The U-Bolt Smart Part depicted in the video represents Fastenal’s entire line of 316 Stainless Steel U-Bolts created as an Autodesk Inventor iLogic Smart Part. Using Smart Parts, a manufacturer can dramatically reduce the size of their Autodesk Inventor part libraries and simplify the construction of their Inventor models. With smart parts, you need only one nut, one washer, one elbow fitting, etc. The time savings are dramatic, and the BOM is accurate!
