Hole depth

In a C beam I need a hole on one side, if I give through hole mean the opposite side also get cut. So the end of the hole have to determine by upto face and can’t change angle of drilling tool tip.

    Post a link to your document here, if it's not proprietary - that will make a lot easier for the community here to help you.

    Vote for the improvement request to allow holes to be made "up to face" instead of just blind or thru.

    Until "up to face" holes get implemented, is there a reason simply setting the hole to a blind hole a few mm deeper than the C-channel thickness wouldn't work?

    If the channel thickness might vary significantly you could use a variable to set both the thickness and hole depth so they update together.

    I'm not sure what you mean by adjusting the drill point angle--even though setting a "blind" hole type requires a drill point angle, since you're actually drilling through the first side, the point angle shouldn't matter.

    Edit: for reference, the IR that @brian_brady referred to is here.
