    I wish they'd be split out into their own category within Onshape. 
    My understanding of a "Prevailing Torque" nut is something that has a deliberate oval to the shape of the hole. This means that fitting it bends the nut into round which in turn provides the locking.   Used in high temp environments such as exhaust manifolds. Personally I'd not have found these nuts without this thread. ;)

    I'm not sure this thread is still alive. But I can't find "threaded hex standoffs" like these: https://www.mcmaster.com/spacers/system-of-measurement~metric/threaded-standoffs/

    When looking in the annex, the only "standoffs" that I can find are self-clinching ones for sheet metal. But I'm looking for the classic threaded hex standoffs, like we use to separate motherboard from the casing, etc.

    Have I missed it, or is there a good reason why it's not there yet?

    Thanks :)
