This is likely a question to be answered by the SolidWorks folks


I am trying to add a 0-80 helical insert to the toolbox configurator - hole wizard. I am trying to establish what the column information is looking for.

Correct me if I am wrong please:

  1. Tap diameter, I assume is the OD of the helical insert
  2. Tap Drill Diameter is the drill dia.
  3. Thread Depth is the single depth of a 1X dia insert


I am not sure what is being represented by:

  1.      DRILL_DEPP
  2.      DRILL_DEPB


Any insight is appreciated.
