Engineers Bolt #1396 is one of a number of objects created for 3D detailing.
The bolt includes optional washers and nut. Set the dimensions of the head, shaft, and even the thread length and pitch. Care is taken to produce a realistic appearance.
Dynamic hotspots are provided to rotate the bolt, and to adjust its length, threaded length, and the position of the nut.
