Any volunteers to write a step-by-step section on how to add Fasteners to the workbench?
I opened a FR on github: https://github.com/shaise/FreeCAD_FastenersWB/issues/95

It's not the adding in itself that is the biggest problem.
At least for existing types of thread?
I have managed some (where .csv where reasonably self-explanatory):
https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 06#p485643

It is a guide to data on .csv (or the lack of it) for other threads (which I didn't have a clue as to what was what) that prevented me doing much more...

An real convenient tool, I hope in the future it will be added to the main distribution. Since the design of devices is closely related to use fasteners.

Shaise How do you think about the idea of one type of fastener = one *.csv file?
For easy create and import new fasteners.

If you don't mind, I would like to write a simple parser that will read not several separate csv files, but one monolithic one in a new csv format.
