DriveWorks Pro 15: Hole Wizard Features [send feedback...]

Introduction

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Hole Wizard Units

The units used to drive any dimensional values for hole wizard parameters are determined by the setting Feature Parameters behavior (see SOLIDWORKS Settings)
