i have to many holes to create in some plates i have coordinates x,y. so is it possible to make hole wizard feature with given coordinates ?
solved the problem by my self .txt file which includes x and y coordinates can be directly browsed into table driven pattern which gives more control on the feature
Are they all same size?
thanks for replying hole size are different. some of the hole has to be be done by hole wizard and some are just extrude cut most commonly used are dia 10,12,15. I have many parts I need to create holes on. I have coordinates. it takes too much time if I place a point with coordinates and then use hole on it
I guess you have a list of coordinates in an Excel file or a .csv? Excel files work quite well together with SolidWorks, so I suggest you create such a file first. Using the hole wizard for simple round holes as well would be advisable. You need at least four columns:
My suggestion is to try the following algorithm:
thanks for Replying peter as my level of working with api is not so good I don't know how I can connect it and make it working. at the moment what I do is I have a macro to transfer coordinates in txt file as sketch points with reference to that I maker holes it still takes very long I have may holes to make in each parts mostly I have straight cut holes of 10, 12 ,15
I also have the same questions. I want to have thousands of through holes (all in the same size) in the plate and I have x y coordinates for all the points. I searched previous discussion threads, and currently, I am able to generate these points on a 2D or 3D plane by the shared excel file. And, I was trying to use the hole wizard to make the through holes and then It requires me to assign the location; however, I can't find a way to assign all of the points simultaneously. What I can do is that choose the point one by one, which is kind of inefficient. Most critically, there are thousands of points need to be assign. Therefore, herein, could someone give me some suggestions? Thank you in advance.
Make one hole at required position. Now create a 2d sketch using those coordinates values on the same face you used initially for the first hole. Finally use sketch driven pattern method to pattern the hole to required positions.
Thank you so much, Deepak.
