[REQUEST] Threaded Custom Holes in Hole Wizard

Connor_LeCLaireConnor_LeCLaire Member Posts: 18 PRO

I made a discussion about this in October but thought I'd make another to bring it back up as it didn't seem to get any traction.

I'd like to request the addition of threaded holes in the custom hole tab of the hole wizard.

Currently if I want to make a counter-bored threaded hole (for something like a headless shoulder screw) I cannot make the threaded hole and counterbore-type hole for the shoulder screw in a single feature (and as such, have a single callout in the drawing). It requires either two callouts in drawing (of which the "counterbore" is expressed with a depth symbol rather than a counterbore symbol), or the addition of a manually added extra line which does not support tolerances on the dimensions.

Thanks for your consideration!

    I agree - I'm trying to do some near-side countersinks on ansi tapped holes. As soon as I customize the standard countersink I lose the thread callout. Sort of related - would be nice to have dowel sizing AND the number of holes called out in the drawing.
