—Exceeds plate thickness.
—Not connected with a nut.
—Thread length is too short.
#MUSCRMIN not fulfilled.
—Thread depth exceeded.
—Thread length is too short.
#MUSCRMAX is exceeded.
You can enter the MIN and MAX values for #ETSCR and #MUSCR in the configuration file ifx_screw_data.cfg.
2. Double-click a problematic fastener. The Screw Fastener Definition dialog box opens, listing the fastener errors.
3. Correct the fastener errors.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each problematic fastener.
