I would like to add a diameter to the threaded stud I have in the Shear Stud category. When I pick "New" and put in the information and then pick "Apply" nothing happens and the new diameter is not added. What is the procedure for adding a diameter?Thank you.

Russ,the problem could be that your units are not set to decimal inch to apply new values in the management tools. Fractional values will not be retained in the management tools.Best Regards,

I'm sorry Tommy but those directions do not make any sense. How can I choose the diameter I want if it is not there? I need 31.75mm diameter. The list stops at 30.00mm. The "New" button doesn't add the diameter I want to the list. I don't see how adding some values to the geometry section will generate a new diameter. Do you have any instructions that are more clear or detailed?Thanks.

Hello Russ In order to help us to help you, we will need to know which version of AS are you using? Do you need to add this diameter to an existing shear stud type? or do you need to create a totally need stud?Regards,

2016 R2. I'm adding this diameter to an existing stud that I had created previously.

Russ,After further review it's seems that there is an issue with the R2 release and we will report it. the FAQ I sent was working on the previous version.That being said, new shear studs can also be added through the table editor. The categories for the Shear Studs "Connectors" will all be located in the AstorBase.See attached image. Best regards,
