Insert Standard Content

I've just been inserting a load of Csk bolts and found that because my Csk holes are 'tighter' than the default the bolts sit above the part that they are inserted into. Would it be possible to have an option that specifies the 'Top of Head' as the mate connector?

    @GWS50 Currently both counterbore and countersunk holes only come with sizing for socket head cap screws and countersunk socket head cap screws, and as such the automatic sizing does not consider fasteners of different head types and sizes.  You'll see us soon improve holes to have a new automatically generated mate connector at the virtual intersection of conical faces (apex).  This will greatly ease inserting parts with conical mating faces (countersunk fasteners) into those holes.  Beyond that you will see us address easily creating countersunk and counterbored holes for the full compliment of fasteners in our standard content library.  Beyond that still, we will likely offer a recess parameter to ensure that fasteners will always be recessed in your parts given the interplay of all the manufacturing tolerances involved in your design.  A recess parameter of "0" or any other value, with a hole that considers your exact fastener type and size, along with easy insertion into assemblies is certainly what we are working towards.
