DriveWorks Pro 15: Simple Hole [send feedback...]


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.

Simple Hole

DepthDistanceSets the depth of this simple hole feature
DiameterDistanceSets the diameter of this simple hole feature
DraftWhileExtrudingTrue/FalseSet as true to apply a draft angle to the simple hole feature
DraftAngleAngleSets the draft angle for this simple hole feature.
DraftOutwardsTrue/FalseSets whether to draft the simple hole feature outward

One of the following values:





Set Type as Blind to define the hole with a depth

Set Type as ThroughAll to set the hole to cut through all bodies

Set Type as UpToNext to set the hole to cut up to the next surface

Set Type as MidPlane to define the hole with a depth centred on the sketch plane

SurfaceOffsetDistanceSets the offset distance of an OffsetFromSurface hole
ReverseOffsetTrue/FalseReverses the direction of the offset distance for an OffsetFromSurface hole
TranslateSurfaceTrue/FalseApplies the offset distance relative to the specified surface
