Hole Milling Update

Hi,

 

I'm not sure if this is a bug or if there is an automatic updating option I could check to relieve me of this issue. For example, I create a drill hole at .386" that goes through my part. I extude a clearance cylinder for that hole at .625" thats 1" deep for a bearing that slides into it. I first drill the part at .386" and then use the hole_milling operation to create the bearing clearance. I put the part into machine, run it and find out that the .625" clearance is a little to big for the part and I want to back it down to .623". I update the model, switch back into manufacturing mode and regenerate all the operations so that the next piece I make is correct. 

 

What I have noticed (and it has cause me to ruin some expensive prototypes) is that if I go back into the hole_milling operation I created, click on the Specift Feature Geometry button and look at the diameter of the selected features, it never updated to the new .623" value. It is still at .625" I either have to manually enter in the new value or deselect and the reselect the hole I want milled. 

 

Is this a bug or some associative option I haven't found or is this working as intended? I would like to see more direct associativity in the future if that is possible when it comes to hole making ( which I think is already fantastic.)

 

Thanks.

Re: Hole Milling Update

What NX release do you use?

Generally the value must update, if this is not the case, you found a bug and should report it to GTAC.

I'm using 10.0.3. Everything on my system is up to date.

Re: Hole Milling Update

Where on the GTAC page am I supposed to report this bug? Could you send me a link please.

Thanks

Re: Hole Milling Update

Thanks lbonomi.
So is this a bug that needs to be reported or do I just need to approve changed to the hole geometry everytime?

Re: Hole Milling Update

It is mandatory to approve changes to the hole features, else the changes will not be applied.

Re: Hole Milling Update

Sounds good. Since I don't believe that to be a bug, I won't report it. Thanks for all your help!
