hole command

Ed_McGuireEd_McGuire OS Professional Posts: 24 PRO
i just tried using the hole command, but i want a 1/4-20 tapped.  according to my cheat sheet, that means that for 75% thread engagement, i need a 0.201" (#7 bit) hole.  

so i just cut extruded a 0.201 circle, and i'll note it by hand in my dwg.

to me, the hole command should have that option.  a 50% or 75% engagement option.  

that way in a drawing, when i dim that hole, it would pull the hole info and list "drill #7, tap 1/4-20".

like in the "Fit" option, u hv "Close" & "Free".  i would add "50%" and "75%" for tapped holes.

so if u picked 1/4-20 with a "Fit" of "50%", the actual dia would be 0.2188".

if u picked "75%", the actual dia would be 0.201".
