Pitch Circle Diameter holes

Question asked by John Wayman on Apr 30, 2015

Hello,

I am new to SW, so this may be a simple question. I can't find the answer in a quick search of this forum, or in SW help, however.

 

I have a part with 3 M3 tapped holes, equispaced on a diameter 35 pitch circle diameter.

I would like to create them in that way, and have my drawing note parametrically read something like:

 

3 X M3-6H x 6 MIN FULL THREAD

EQUISPACED ON A (diameter symbol)35 PCD

 

Firstly, how do I tell SW to create the holes with this dimensioning scheme? I imagine the hole wizard is my friend, but I am not sure exactly how to accomplish it.

Next, how do I get the dimension to show as desired on the drawing?

 

Thank you for your help.

Cheers,

 

John

 

Just as a postscript, in Pro/E, I would create the 1st hole on a diameter/angle and pattern it using the angle dimension. In the drawing, I would make the note read something &p1 X M3x0.5-6h EQUISPACED ON A &D123PCD, where p1 would be the number of pattern instances and D123 would be the diameter dimension. I imagine the technique is something similar in SW, but I am struggling a bit.
