Utilisation du modèle d'esquisse pour simuler le comportement de la série de trous au niveau de la pièce

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated June 22, 2012


The HOLE SERIES is a powerful time saver that enables the creation of different type of holes, parametrically linked together, on the components of an assembly.

Imagine that you want to create counterbore holes in the top plate, clearance holes in the middle plates and tapped holes in the bottom plate. Of course, you need all these holes to be driven by one sketch; so, should you move, delete or add points in that sketch, all the holes would be influenced by that.

If you work in assembly mode, good for you; the HOLE SERIES tool will do all of the above.

But what can you do if you want to parametrically link various types of holes in a part model?
