For comparison, I would like to carry out remodeling of a connection with RF-FRAME-JOINT Pro, but have problems with the bolt spacings. Are there any other spacings or have I overlooked something?

Answer

The difference may be caused by the standard wrench dimensions, which require minimum dimensions in some places. Thus, exact recalculation is more difficult.

RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro checks whether the wrench dimensions allow the connection to be mounted. The standard dimensions or a user default can be used here. To ensure screwability, the dimensions D and L of a common wrench socket, as well as b and h of a torque wrench, are shown.

However, you can change these spacings to reach the desired dimensions. To open the corresponding dialog box, use the "Details" button and the button labeled "Wrench Dimensions" (see Figure 01).
