SOLIDWORKS 2017 Advanced Hole Wizard

Article by Jamie Hill, CSWE updated December 27, 2016


SOLIDWORKS 2017 has a new feature: Advanced Holes!

Mold tooling often involves networks of complex multi-step holes. These features can be tedious to create and reuse. The SOLIDWORKS 2017 Advanced Hole Wizard provides a simple way to stack up these complex holes. Just select from the list of different hole types to build up a stack of various profiles. Clearance holes, countersinks, counterbores, and taps can be built up from both the near and far side. Each hole step is tied to a list of available sizes, so you preserve your company standards, minimizing mistakes.
