Threaded studs and standoffs

  Previous topic Next topic JavaScript is required for the print function  

To place threaded studs or standoffs on your main plate, please first select Insert > Stud/standoff and place the object. In the subsequent dialog box "Stud/standoff properties", you can then determine the desired properties (design type, thread size, length).

Properties of a stud or a standoff

The following properties can be specified in the "Stud/standoff properties" dialog box:

Variable

Description

Type

Select between standoff (female thread) and stud (male thread)

Thread

Currently only M3 is available as male or female thread in the drop-down list box

Length

Selectable length refers to the geometrical length of the stud or standoff (not the thread lengths)

Depth offset

Places stud/standoff on the front panel deeper by the specified value.

Place on reverse side

Studs or standoffs are attached by default to the reverse side in additionally manufactured cavities (Ø 7.0 mm)

The inserted studs or standoffs are attached in specially milled cavities by default.

Please note the required distances to the edges of the front panel or objects (see section "Geometric constraints" below).

Geometric constraints

Studs or standoffs are attached by default in specially milled cavities (Ø 7.0 mm). For secure attachment, their reference points should be placed at least half their diameter plus 0.5 mm from the edge of the front panel or from the edges of objects which pass through the front panel.

Please take a cavity depth of 1.1 mm into account plus a safety clearance of 0.5 mm, if the cavities for studs or standoffs overlap with an object that does not pass through the front panel (e.g. cavity) on the opposite side.
