    Linear Patterened Holes in a hole table

    Tina Downing

      I have a part where there is an 1/8" hole thru a 7/8" hole and then patterened for 9 instances.  My issue is when I create a Hole Table (chart) in the drawing and select the 1/8" hole feature to be included it gives me the 7/8" hole size in the table.  How do I get around this?

       

      I've tried selecting both the face, and the hole edge, neither worked.

          Hi Tina, can you post an image of the geometry you are trying to show in the hole table, im a bit unsure if you mean you have a nested hole, i.e. a blind 7/8" hole with a 1/8" hole in it? (essentially a counterbored hole) or do you mean the 1/8" hole is radial to the 7/8" hole through its bore?

            The 7/8 dia hole, is a c'bore, and the 1/8" hole is offset from the center of the hole.  D1/E4 is the original geometry, the D2/G1 is form the pattern.

                Ah ok, I get what your trying to do (couldn't work out why it differed from a normal Cbore hole but the excentricity from the centre explains that!)

                 

                I've got a test to work (in 2015...what version are you using?) to a sort of fashion

                 

                I selected both the top face of the model plus the 9 bottom faces of the counterbore (all marked with a red cross) which gave me this

                this gives you rows for each hole (I then combined same sizes) the annoyance with this is it still sees it as a counterbore regardless of the offset nature of the hole (in the truest sense of the word it Is I guess), therefore the easiest way to get round this is to then select the size cell and remove the "diameter 1/8" thru" portion of the cell text, i'm afraid its not responding automatically but it is atleast getting you 9/10ths of the way.

                 

                Hope this is of some use.

                I'm currently using 2014, Interesting how it gave you a C'bore in the description with the .175 thru.  When I selected both the top and bottom faces, it still gave me the C'bore callout.

                My fix was taking the 1/8" thru out of the original linear patter in the model, making it a separate pattern.
