My name is Tim Grant, I'm a 15 year machine designer, just started with NX 3 weeks ago (NX 9), and this is my first post. Thanks for having me.
In a drawing I'm using the radial dimension> hole callout command to dimension threaded and counterbored holes in a simple part; please see attached file. In the model the cbore hole Depth Limit is set to Through Body. The threaded hole Depth Type is set to Full and Depth Limit is set to Through Body. In the drawing the hole callout of the cbore displays "THRU" for the shaft diameter depth (as expected) but the depth for the threaded holes displays as the thickness dimension of the part (in this case 12.70mm) instead of "THRU". How can I make the hole callout always display "THRU" for through-body threaded holes?
Thanks very much,
