    Extended "Hole Wizard" Functionality

    Eddie Cyganik
      To All,

      Based on a topic posted by Rich Osterreicher titled; "Threading Command". I got to thinking about improvements. Rich's request is to provide a threading command with functionality like the Hole Wizard. In one of my replies, I suggested that the thread functionality be added directly to the Hole Wizard. Rich replied that external threads have nothing to do with holes and of course, he's right. So I said; "What about a Shaft Wizard?"

      So here is the question: What other types of features could benefit from the Hole Wizard interface? Or what features could be added directly to this interface?

      It doesn't matter to me if there is a "Hole Wizard" and a "Shaft Wizard" or if everything were to be combined into a new "Hole/Shaft Wizard", the point is, there are many things that could be added.

      Rich is requesting
      -> Internal Threads (Hole)
      -> External Threads (Shaft)

      Currently, I have the following Palette Features:
      -> Internal O-Ring Groove (Hole)
      -> Internal Thread Undercut (Hole)
      -> Internal Retaining Ring Groove (Hole)
      -> External O-Ring Groove (Shaft)
      -> External Thread Undercut (Shaft)
      -> External Retaining Ring Groove (Shaft)

      I also have the following Library Features:
      -> Center Drill (Hole)
      -> SAE J1926 Ports (Hole)
      -> MS33649 Ports (Hole)
      -> Face Seals (Hole)
      -> Plus I have additional company/product specific hole & shaft type features.

      What do you have? ...or ...What would you like to see added and how?
