Issue with Hole Wizard Api

Question asked by Paul Cross on Mar 16, 2018

I am having an issue when using the IWizardHoleFeatureData2 interface for SolidWorks 2018.

When querying the hole type for the following I am being returned a value that I am not expecting:

The hole is a Straight Pipe Tapped Hole with a counter sink so I would expect the returned type to be swPipeTapBlindCounterSinkTop however the returned type is in fact swTapBlindCosmeticThreadCounterSinkTop.

Does anyone know if this is intended behavior due to the cosmetic thread option selected or if it is a bug? If it is intended behavior, does anyone have any ideas on how to actually determine if the hole is a Pipe Tapped Hole?

 

Kind regards,
