Location: Tools>Feature>Reamed Hole

To create a reamed hole, enter the information about the feature in this dialog box. Your selections will be reflected in the Preview window.

If you wish, you may click the KEY-IN button (at the bottom of the dialog box) in order to enter the parametric values for the feature manually.

Dialog Options:

Size

Pick a Size for the hole from the list of Standards, or enter a size in the text field.

Type

Choose from Through, Blind, or To Depth. If To Depth was selected, you may select a Ream Depth, otherwise this option will be "frozen." You may Key-in a depth or choose another option from the pull down list to specify the ream depth. These two options are described in the Depths section.

Drill Point Angle

Sets the bottom angle of the drilled hole. When the Blind method is checked on manual entry is possible.

 

Ream Depth

Choose a Depth for the ream segment of the hole. You can Key-in a depth in the text field or click on the pull down list for more options. If the Blind type is selected you will get the additional  secondary Depth options for the drill depth (through all, up to next face and up to face) as well as activating the Depth option. Your other choices are:

  • Line - Select an existing line. The line's length will be used as the feature's depth.

  • 2 Pts. - Choose two points to indicate the depth. The feature's depth will be the distance between the two points.

  • Plane - Select a plane to indicate the feature depth. The depth will be the distance from the current construction plane to the selected plane. The selected plane must be parallel to the XY plane of the current Cplane.

  • Through All- Choose this option to make holes through all apposing faces (after selecting the start face.)

  • Up to next face- Choose this to pick a face that has an apposing face you wish to stop at (you will be prompted for a face to start and then a face to stop.)

  • Up to face- This option will place the hole through multiple apposing faces after choosing the initial face and will stop at a chosen stop face.

Depth

Choose a depth for the overall depth of the hole. You can key-in a depth in the context field or click on the drop down for additional options (if no key-in value is entered and you don't choose one of the alternate methods from the drop down, then the through All will be the depth method. If the Type =To Depth you will see the last 3 choices as options (through all, up to next face and up to face.) Your other choices are:

  • Line - Select an existing line. The line's length will be used as the feature's depth.

  • 2 Pts. - Choose two points to indicate the depth. The feature's depth will be the distance between the two points.

  • Plane - Select a plane to indicate the feature depth. The depth will be the distance from the current construction plane to the selected plane. The selected plane must be parallel to the XY plane of the current Cplane.

  • Through All- Choose this option to make holes through all apposing faces (after selecting the start face.)

  • Up to next face- Choose this to pick a face that has an apposing face you wish to stop at (you will be prompted for a face to start and then a face to stop.)

  • Up to face- This option will place the hole through multiple apposing faces after choosing the initial face and will stop at a chosen stop face.

Representation

Select a Representation (or "view"): Top, Side, Bottom, Wire 3D or Solid. Wire 3D and Solid representations are created in the -ZV direction.
