Number of Holes in drafting

Hi,

 

Anybody have an idea on how to automatically come out the number of holes using annotation?

 

Let say I have a part that have 6 counterbore holes (generate using hole wizard) and I would like to do annotation for only one holes since the holes are the same. But the annotation already mention the total number of holes in that part.

 

For now I put it manually from dimension, is it any other way that can do automatically?

You have to wait for ST9 to do that.

is it true in upcoming version they will be function like this?

Hi there @Arisy,

Pretty sure there is a work around, where you have to expose the quantity in the variable table, to then access in the callout.

It shouldn't have ever been this hard!

I'd like to reiterate that question. Is this function going to be in ST9?

Yes. Dropped at the SEU2015 ST9 sneak peeks session.

Will this require the holes to be all put in a single hole feature or does it just add up holes of the same properties?

 

I ask because I tend to do a single hole and pattern it out as a second step.

Good question!

There are a few options - you will be able to count all similar holes in a part, on a face or in the same direction.

Your patterned case will be handled.
