    Hello albie0803,

    as you've changed the menu a little bit, there are two ways, i try to build a "look alike" or you can post your actual to rearrange it...
    The next is changing the names of the inputs seems not so easy as changing the input values.

    It looks to me as i have to rescue all input values and close the form and then open the form again with the new Options list, hm, i'll try it...

    How many HeadTypes with different length lists will be there?
    No Drivertypes anymore?

    Regards
    Stefan

    It would be easier to add all three to the bottom and disable the two you don't need.

    I didn't follow the problem with DistanceTo. Please make a simplified part/assembly with simple script and upload. Thanks. Andy

    If I understand this correctly, the only driver types you would have would be slot and hex socket. What about hexhead?

    @oldfox Instead of having flat head (c/sunk) sub categories I will just have them in the head type list.
    • Hex Head
    • Socket Head Cap Screw
    • Cheese Head
    • Countersunk Slotted Head
    • Countersunk Socket Head
    • Stud
    This way I can have standard length tables for each type.

    Hi albie,
    I think you prefer the Flat Cap Head and it isn't in the list. Do you agree olfox?

    Not sure what you are referring to. Can you grab a pic from somewhere?

    Hi albie,
    It's just a joke regarding to your "flat cup hat" avatar picture. Anyway, very good Scrip topic.:) upload_2019-6-28_11-59-15.png

    @ajayre Hello Andy, Have you had a chance to look at this question?

    gap = part1.face.DistanceTo(part2.face)

    Yes, but it's not straightforward to solve. Andy

    I have run into an apparent bug in AD that is blocking this - reported to Alibre. Andy
