Countersink hole from opposite face
The above is an extruded shape. I'm using the Hole feature and the points for the holes have been drawn on a plane derived from the "bottom" of the shape. Thus, the countersink is at that location. I'd like the countersink to start at the opposite face, to create a countersunk "pocket" hole in the curved face. The hole is not normal to the curved face.
A manual strategy would be to offset the drawing plane for the hole by eyeballing it to match where I think the hole would intersect the curved face, but if I ever changed the slope of the curve, or adjusted some other aspects of the drawing, the hole would no longer align.
I'm wondering if there is a parametric technique I'm missing? It would be cool if you could chose which "end" of the hole the countersink starts from...
edit: tag: "farside countersink" - obviously I'm not the first person to wonder about this!
