New Hole Database, Blind Holes?

Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble with the new ST7 hole feature.  We typically have all of our tapped holes using a blind tap drill and finite thread depth (we'll deviate from that when rarely required).  How do I edit the XLS file to do this?  I've set all the required fields (tap drill depth; thread depth) however it's still requiring me to select 'to depth' each time.

 

Thanks

David

Re: New Hole Database, Blind Holes?

Hello David,

 

Try adding the depth values in the following columns in Holes Database -

- Thread Depth – Length For Internal Threads Column
-  Hole Depth (Tap drill depth) -  Hole Depth Column

Also you are saying that "it's still requiring me to select 'to depth' each time". So make sure you have selected Finite Extent option for Hole Extent .

 

Thanks,

Sandeep
