Hi folks, I know this is probably trivial but I may as well ask. I have been able to find tutorials on creating recessed circular holes for screws, but I cant find anything about hex bolts.
I want to make an m4 bolt hole that is recessed for the bolt to snugly fit into. I thought about it for a while and kinda gave up as I didnt know how to go about in getting the process down. Normally I would mess around with something then print, then try to fix the error then print again and see if the part fits. That is totally not the right way so its best if I just ask someone if they can show me how its done.
I have included a pic of what I was doing. The square is the measurement of the bolt which is 6.78mm, the hole is 4mm for the bolt to fit into. I dont know how to get the corners of the bolt, I tried with the calipers but I think I am just doing it the wrong way and the corner measurements are possibly off anyway.
