I have worked with pro-e for many years. in Pro-e you can insert a part into an assembly and add taped holes in the part. I find I do not have that option with solidworks. Is there a way to insert taped holes in an assembly part?
2019 SOLIDWORKS Help - Creating Holes as Assembly Features
Look into hole series as well.
In the real world - is this an assembly level feature that does not exist in the part until the components are assembled?
Or does the tapped hole exist in the part before assembled?
You can do it either way, but this information must be known.
Only if you're trying to judge if someone's using bad practice...
"Propagate features to parts"
Sometimes the location of the hole is really difficult to determine (and potentially ever-changing as the design progresses) until things are arranged in the assembly.
Imagine you were mounting a organically shaped sign on a sheet metal wall. Whether you decide to put the holes in the assembly level or convert entities into the part the result is still an in context part. Now imagine that the sheet metal wall is round. Assembly level "hole series" with toolbox hardware pulled in is the way I would go.
