Representing rivets in aerospace

Representing rivets in aerospace

Representing rivets in aerospace

(OP)
Hi, All.

This should open up a can of worms.  For you aerospace guys (others may respond as well, but this is more of an industry issue), how do you normally represent rivets?  The way I see it, we have several options:

a)  Show only the point
b)  Show only the centerline
c)  Show only the point and centerline
d)  Model only the head (button)
e)  Model rivet complete with grip length

I am looking at issues like BOM management, assembly size, linking, and modeling complexity.

Thanks.

Ken.
