Up to now I had been using Hole command using Sketch points. Now I’m exploring how to use Position=Points in conjunction with Point Dialogue.
I could create points but how could I move the point positions at a later time? Is it possible only to delete and recreate?
But I don't want to de-select(=delete and recreate) because in the drawing that hole could be attached with a hole callout.
To me also it looks like we can only deselect the initial point and create a new one. (if using the point constructor for creating point within the hole dialog).
But try looking into expressions (for some options we get expression for the hole co-ordinate values) and can edit the values from there.
in case you create point as separately feature "Point" (it is not point inside Hole feature - e.g. point on face), the point must be in Part Navigator. If this point is not in Part Navigator I suppose you dont have set Associative in point dialog.
Thanks Kapil for your efforts. I tested them yesterday and I’m sure you will agree that method involves too many click for a simple task.
Unfortunately Sketches with parametric behaviour is not quite popular with many NX users. They create models fast with like these Point dialogue methods, Dumb curves (Which isn’t taught anymore in NX classes) but to change or revise them is cumbersome.
It sounds like your coworkers like to use "dumb" geometry; you (or they) can create unassociative points where the holes will be, then use these points as the references in the hole command. The points can be moved later and the hole feature will follow.
Cowski1, I was exploring point creation capability inside the Hole Command. To me, it's not very user friendly.
The method you describe is the way that most of our other designers use. Whenever they use sketches, they draw circles first and when creating Holes, pick centre points of those circles. I don’t know why they don’t directly use the sketch points capability inside the Hole command.
