How Can We Help?

Add a washer

You are here:

If you have washers in your library, make sure to add them to the Lightning database.

Because we make it really easy to add a washer after you drag a new bolt or nut into your assembly.

Just pick a bolt or nut in the first column, then pick a washer type in the last column.

lightning - fastener filter solidworks - add washer

Lightning will then:

  1. Find the matching diameter, material and coating
  2. Find the correct washer file and configuration
  3. Add the washer underneath your bolt or nut
  4. Add coincident and concentric mates

It’s incredibly easy to use. It’s also a lot of fun 🙂
