I would like to model a connection with a FRAME for a comparison, but have problems with the bolt spacings. Are there any other distances or have overlooked something?

Answer

The difference may be due to 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 socket wrench insert, as well as b and h of a torque wrench, are shown.

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