Hello all,


I am trying to modify the default tapped thread depth.  Currently solidworks has the defult thread depth set to "Blind (2 * DIA)".  I want to change this formula to "2.5 * DIA" which is our company standard.  Up until now, I have had to change this parameter manually for every new hole that I create.  Where in the software can I modify this value?  I am familliar with the toolbox configurator and the underlying database with all the tapped hole types, but I have been unable to find the hole depth calculation parameter and edit it.  I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out on this issue?  Thank you in advance.
