See www.mcmaster.com for a catalog of different bolts. – Note that in the end condition you set the depth of the hole corresponding to the bolt (blind). – You can customize bolts – but typically, you will want to use something which matches the catalog. – Put the bolt on the part, then select the point at the middle of the hole (flush with the surface) and modify the position.
