How to configure tapped holes ?

    You can configure the individual values.

    When I do this and want to adjust the hole depth, the feature no longer builds.

    @René_Sartorio From what I can tell it looks like the regen issue might come from a conflict with three values; drill hole depth, tap depth, and tap clearance.

    My guess is that the relation between the drill depth and tap clearance has conflicting information when you try to configure both the drill depth and tap depth values. i.e., having a 7.46mm drill hole with a 2.75mm tap depth equals ?what? tap clearance. (I hope that makes sense).

    Play around with adding or removing the tap depth and tap clearance column and see what happens.

    I would personally only have either the drill depth or the tap depth in my config if possible and let Onshape calculate proper depth and clearance for the other value.

    Hope you get it figured out!

    Thanks, Michael
