SOLIDWORKS 2018 adds SOLIDWORKS Toolbox hexalobular fasteners, commonly known as Torx. The 6-point star shaped drive can be found in automobiles, power equipment, computers, electronicsm, etc . As the hexalobular profile has been standardized under ISO 10664, you can find these fasteners under the ISO standard in the Toolbox.
Within the ‘Bolts and Screws’ directory you can find ‘Hexalobular Socket Head Screws’ and ‘Self Tapping Screws’. Each of these folders contain the hexalobular fasteners.
The hexalobular types included are:
