How to treat one bolt for different customers which use different part numbers

By Mike Malli on 12 Feb 23:53 1 answer 323 views 0 comments

I am using Grabcad as a vault for all my customers projects. Soem customers have got their own numbering system for standard parts like fasteners. What is the best system to treat the same fastener across several customers which have different part numbers for the same bolt?
I have a few ideas but I am not sure how practical they are

    Hi Mike,

    We run into this a lot at my job. What we have done is make our own numbering system for parts and unless a customer requests we use a numbering system they have, do we really worry about it since bolts are so common. If they do request that you use their numbering system, I would ask them for their catalog/system copy to have on hand and go by it only in those circumstances. It is quite tedious work, but it is what it is.
