drilling depth setting

I have a question on the drill.


I would like to set the depth value based on Tool Tip.

But it is set based on CL_SHOULDER.




Is there a way?


Re: drilling depth setting


I don't think so, You can still use the old school drilling which has that option


The tip length is described on the tool page.

Just have to do the math

Do not change the depth of the hole feature, since that doesn't capture the intent of the user.

It is much better and easier to use the setting "use predefined depth", which works much better and more reliable for manual changes.
