ER: FBM: add hole attributes to indicate step with fit face

Gears Esteemed Contributor Gears Esteemed Contributor

I have filed another enhancement request regarding FBM and tooling design (like MoldWizard, Die Design, etc.) to include the information about which step of a hole contains a fit face.

Below find a proposal for a "me too" request at GTAC.

ER Template
# Short Description of desired enhancement: <Problem rather than a solution>
    * it is not possible to determine which hole face is a fit face

# What activity in your process is the product not able to currently handle?
    * we need to identify the hole step that is a fit face to select the appropriate machining rule
        + for example distinguish between fit milling and reaming

# What result are you trying to achieve? (Please provide as many details as possible.)
    * We like to get an attribute that holds the diameter number that is marked as a fit face when using parametric machining feature recognition

# Do you currently have a workaround?
    * No

# Do you have a proposal for the solution you envision Siemens PLM providing for this capability?
    * Similar to the attribute THREAD_DIAMETER_NR, that holds the step identified as thread, an attribute would be needed for the following tooling design attributes
        + MW_HOLE_EJ_PIN_FIT
        + and any others that the tooling design developers are aware of

# What is the level of productivity gained from such an enhancement?
    * HIGH
        + further improve the reliability of the manufacturing process created through FBM
        + better reuse information provided by other NX automation tools, like the tooling design

# Other information:
    * See for the tooling design attributes
    * Link to existing ER#9266958

If you find this beneficial for your company ask GTAC to be attached to this enhancement request.
