hole series option in reusable component

Hi, some of the standard parts have the option "hole series" in the 'Create Pocket' section, so that when the reusable object is added to an assembly, the pocket is created at the assembly level (as 'Hole Series feature) and not in each single component.

I cannot get to have this option when I create my own reusable object: maybe the reusable object needs to have a Thread feature in order to have tis option available, or maybe there is some attribute to set?

 Below is what I get when I create my own: no option for Hole Series, only "Subtract".

Why are you posting virtually the same item over and over again?  If you feel that you need to make a change or add to your original post, simply edit it or post a reply yourself, don't start another thread from scratch.  Also note that you can go back and delete any of your own posts so I would recommend that you leave the one in place that represents what you're try to get information and delete the rest.

Re: hole series option in reusable component

thank you Mike, but this seems only valid for Assembly fastener, not for
single reusable component?

Yes, Hole Series work only for assemblies. Basic NX Hole creation comand is at a very primitive stage and I don't think it could handle what you looking for. I guess, you need to find work arounds like having differnt screws for each reuseable fastner pocketing type Screw-C/B, Screw-Clrn_Hole, Screw_Thread, etc.

I found some other workarounds with this NX Hole creation comand and hoping to make some contribution to Knowledge Base later.  

 

Even Basic NX Hole creation Tool needs lots of improvements. Normally with screw mounting, there are Dowels! where is it?
