Sometimes, during an Inventor project, you’ll catch a lucky-break that will end up saving you (and your customers!) hours; this is one of those occasions:
As part of the many facets offered by the Professional Services team here at Graitec, we provide the service to create for customers high-quality, BS8888-compliant drawing packs for your prototype manufacture & project work.
During one of these such recent projects, I was required to use the “Torx” family of fixings, or to give them their official name: “Hexalobular socket pan head screws”. For those that don’t know, these are the kind of bolt that has a head/driver pattern that looks like this:
If you look hard enough online you can find the rough specifications:
Which is great if you have the time to piece the necessary shape of this family of parts together. All-told, there are around 10 different British Standards available for the shape(s) of the fixings available with this driver-pattern and a further, separate standard that governs the shape of the driver itself.
