Adding to fastener database
Wondering can we add our own data to the fasteners database. Particularily I want to add fine thread studs

RE:Adding to fastener database
Murray, 

The databases for all of the fasteners are simple CSV files open to editing by those clever enough to follow the basic docuemntation the the "Advanced Customization" area of the KeyCreator help. Here is a starting topic: 
https://help.kubotek3d.com/keycreator?id=A10370

Once you've editied the files you will need to manually copy from install to install or adjust setting to point to your files. I know there are some people on the forum that have customized. They might have some recomendations from lessons learned. 

Best,
John

RE:Adding to fastener database
I have added extra feature and fastener files.  If you want, you can put them it new folders as I did; I added "english-mod" to the fasteners, and "MS-AN-NAS" to the fasteners (and of course the appropriate csv files in those folders).



The new folders become selectable in the "standard" pulldown in the fastener dialog, or in the "database standard" pulldown on the setup page for fasteners.
