    Hole table frustrations

    Jamie Abbott

      Hole tables is an area which needs some serious attention from SW developers.

       

      Why is it such a pain in the arse to create a table from multiple views?

      Why can't you add views to an existing table?

      Why does SW recognise non-circular holes but not combine them in the table?

      Why is it not possible to manually combine similar holes?

      Why does a through hole in a sheet metal part appear as 4 off in a table but show a depth the length of the part?

       

      Argghhh!

       

      /rant - and relax :-)

               S-011980: This is a current limitation. From SolidWorks 2007, it is possible to add multiple views while creating a hole table. But it is not possible to add a view to the existing hole table.

               I don't know this one either.
