Inquire part level hole from assembly

Can anyone running ST7 confirm if the new Measure tools can do this?

 

Or if there is any other method im not aware of...

 

From the assembly I want to inquire holes in a part...  I can place a PMI dimension or inquire the element and get it's diameter but I want to know if its a tapped hole ot just a thru hole...

 

Is there any method for doing so?   I tried placing a PMI call out with %HC but this did not return anything.???

 

Something i've missed all these years or anything new in ST7?

 

Please and Thank you!

Hi,

 

Matt, yes you can do this with new Measure command from assy level to part and vice versa.

 

Here is a video:

 

You can do this from Callout too, but fileds should contain codes (%XX) on Feature Callout tab! This works only "active level"!

Thanks Imics,

 

Does this work for ordered parts too?  I can not "read" your pathfinder to know if that was an ordered or Sync part.

 

It's ordered hole features that we want to inquire from the assy...

 

thanks much
