Is there a way to use Hole Callout when you have to dimension a hole seen in front view?
Just as in the attached picture?
nope. hole callout only works in a view looking directly at the hole.
I see no particular reason why it shouldn’t.
Mouse over some of the lines, and it will tell you the dimension of the thread.
Are there any other ways to dimension a thread in this situation? (beside using a note)
I did not say it made sense - just that that is how it is. if you feel this ability would be of great use to you, submit the enhancement request.
This does suck. Where i came from 2 years ago you could do this. I was totally shocked this system couldn't.
I've found one way to get the thread size. In the side view of the thread. Choose smart dimension then choose the outer two lines of the thread, it will not work if you have "Remove thread" option on. Then we would dimension the thread dp. This will be a dimension not a "hole callout"
It's sort of possible. If you add the hole call-out to the plan view you can then shift+drag it to the front view. The dimension extension lines went wonky and i had to manual adjust them. This is on 2015 btw.
Doesn't work in 2017 :-/
Hole callout only works with circle?
you have to go to the out side of the tap. this changes when tap changes
