Thanks for your reply . Let me explain more . I have a bolt with specific thread( for example M8x1) that is cosmetic , and it be joined with appropriate nut ( the nut have hole wizard M8x1) . i make many configuration of bolt (pg , ansi inch , ,metric ) and want to when i change the configuration of bolt (with a cosmetic thread ) the hole wizard be change automatically . Is there any way?
So you have to use design table and to configure the hole wizard.

My mean is use of equation . Most of future have ability to link whit equation , but i dont know how i link a cosmetic thread with hole wizard .
I'm not sure is it possible to use equation with hole wizard.
You mean that isnt there a way to automatically link the hole wizard with cosmetic thread.
I become exhausted
At least, I don't know. Sorry
Anyone has any idea..
Just a thought,
You can make configurations of the nut as well. And use it in assy. with the bolt. So when you change the bolt config. the will change too.
It is a good idea . But how to relate configuration of two part together . I mean when change one configuration another part configuration be changed automatically? For example when change the bolt from M8 to M10 the Nut be changed from M8 to M10
OK, I'm quite a busy at the moment, but next days I'll prepare a sample for you.
Now i have to create sub assembly and make a lot of configuration and link them ( by use of design table) l .
Is there a better way?
This is the right direction.
Take a look at attached file
Is it work for you. Any feedback?
You make 4 configurations . But I dont want to make configuration , I want to relate the hole wizard configuration of nut with bolt .
I think that the cosmetic thread is an imaginary and dont have any usage except for show in drawing .
I search for link the cosmetic thread with hole wizard , (i mean when i change the configuration of bolt by use of pop up ,the hole wizard future be change automatically , but it seams there isnt any way .
Assume I have a bolt part with 100 configuration of different cosmetic thread , now i have to create 100 sub assembly configuration of bolt and (as a result ) i have to try 100 time to change the configuration of hole wizard , it is boring .
Yes, you are right.
In your case, a macro will be the best I think.
Unfortunately, I can't help you with macros.
Post if you have success.
