# Quantity of slots in draft

Valued Contributor

I have made number of slots (oblong) in my part. Now I want to use callout feature to show the number of slots of same size i have made in the part

I do know how to call the size of the slot but I am unbale to callout the quantity of the slots (like we do in the case of holes)

Please let me know if there is way to do that

Thanks

I do not know about any function to count the number of slots like man can do it with holes

@hawcad Don't you think it is required?

Instead of counting the slots yourself let the software do the correct work???

the only way, I can imagine at the moment is, that You will use a pattern of slots instead of making them manually slot by slot.

Then You wil have access to the pattern (instance) number which shows the count of equal slots in Your part.

Hi Edgers,

to answer the question completely, I would like to say, that IMHO it should be possible to create "Special Hole" feature, that means, not only slots but also hexagonal holes, rectangular holes, etc. in the same way as I do it in the moment with cylindrical holes.

Define the geometry, place the "holes" and get all the info about them.

Besides this "Fast Slot Holes Feature" we also need the current "Smart Slot Feature", where besides a single line contour, it is possible to define any tangent curve sets as drive curves for a lsot feature, as it is in the moment.

This would be my request!

regards
Wolfgang

What I do is use the hole table and put a note "SLOT" off to the side between two hole in the hole table that are the ends of a slot.

Will that solve the purpose of giving a count of the slots of same dimension ?
