I am wondering if somebody knows the way to count the same holes, made as a separate features, together.
For now, I have the same M10 taps counted separately.
Thank you for your help,
The only way to have the holes count together, as far as I know , is to create them with one Hole Wizard feature. Generally what I will do in this case is create the sketched where I would like to hole to go and then us the hole wizard with a 3D sketch to apply all holes at once. because you are using a 3D sketch you can apply holes on different surfaces and keep everything in one feature.
Another option is to make a Hole Table.
This is one of the things Inventor does better. On that, you can select 'count all instances in view' and it'll add them to the quantity note. They don't have to be the same feature, just in the same view on the drawing.
I hope SW will implement a similar command at some point as it's one of the few things I badly miss since moving over.
I was surprised.
Solid Edge is counting all the same-size holes together.
A hole table would do the trick.
It would do the trick, but why have to resort to a hole table that takes up valuable drawing space, when a QTY annotation would solve the issue?
