The hole type: oversized or slotted.
Public property Identifier
The identifier of the object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public property IsUpToDate
Gets if the object does not have a modification which is not shared.
(Inherited from ModelObject.)
Public property Length
The length. An extra variable that is only set when the bolt group is made of studs instead of bolts.

Public property OtherPartsToBolt
The other parts to be bolted (read-only).
Public property PartToBeBolted
The part to be bolted.
Public property PartToBoltTo
The part to bolt to.
Public property Position
The position attributes.
Public property RotateSlots
The rotation of the slots: odd, even or parallel.
Public property SecondPosition
The second position point.
Public property SlottedHoleX
The X allowance of the slotted hole.
Public property SlottedHoleY
The Y allowance of the slotted hole.
Public property StartPointOffset
The start point offset values of the bolt group.
Public property ThreadInMaterial
Whether the thread goes inside the materal or not.
Public property Tolerance
The hole tolerance.
Public property Washer1
