NX9 Hole callouts

Valued Contributor
Valued Contributor

The holes callouts are very good but I have noticed that in the case of an array of holes it is only the original hole that can be dimensioned.

 

This in now way replects the way in which a designer details up a drawing as available space will dictate which of the arrayed holes is dimensioned.

 

Is there any way of getting wound this?

Hi

 

Using NX9.0.1 i don't have a similar behavior.

 

The Drafting / Radial / Hole Callout command lets me select all occurences of a Hole pattern feature.

and not lonly the original.

 

Can you give us more detail ?

Hi

I am creating a hole then using the pattern feature command, then in Drafting using the Radial hole callout.

It will currently only allow me to dimension the original hole but not the instances instances, although it does callout the correct number of holes.

Your say you are using NX9.01, so I will now download that version and give it another go.

Martyn

This has been working fine since NX 9.0 was released.

Eventually got to the bottom of this.

 

The Method has to be set to Variational when doing the array, and not Simple

 

I will go with this, but not sure it make total sense.

Just saw this thread. It is also this way in NX8.5.3. Apparently they have no intention of fixing this.

I've brought these issues to the attention of the people responsible for the Drafting funcionality.

That's corect, today we support selection of all hole callout instances if the pattern was created as a Variational array and not Simple. We intent to support Simple in the future.
