SOLIDWORKS Hole Series

SOLIDWORKS 2018 provides Hole Callout features for Advanced Holes

SOLIDWORKS 2018 Hole Callout

SOLIDWORKS 2017 introduced the Advanced Hole feature which is a powerful tool for creating complex multi-stepped holes. Now in SOLIDWORKS 2018 you can quickly and easily detail an Advanced Hole using the Hole Callout feature. Furthermore, as you place the callout, new “Reverse callout order” and…

Save time by using a SOLIDWORKS Hole Series in your assemblies!

If you have an assembly where you would like to create a counter-bored hole in one part, a clearance hole in another, and end it all off with a threaded hole, a SOLIDWORKS Hole Series is a quick and easy way to accomplish all of…

How to use the SOLIDWORKS Hole Series Wizard

SOLIDWORKS Hole Series

The SOLIDWORKS Hole Series is an assembly feature that creates hole features in the individual components of the assembly. A SOLIDWORKS Hole Series extends through each unsuppressed component in the assembly that intersects the axis of the hole (the components do not have to touch)….

Hole Series in SolidWorks Simulation [VIDEO]

Imagine a manhole cover in a pressure vessel that needs to be bolted to a flange in the pressure vessel. This usually requires a number of bolts to hold the two pieces together. Furthermore, same type of bolts may be present in the assembly at various locations. Imagine having to define all these bolt connectors for a simulation. I am sure this is going to give nightmares to people trying to simulate multiple bolts using SolidWorks Simulation. You will be happy to learn that SolidWorks Simulation has a smart feature which could reduce the effort in the definition of these bolt connectors.

Using the Sketch Pattern to Simulate the Hole Series Behaviour at Part Level

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?   Watch this video…
