# Hole on cylinder

How to create a tapped hole on the edge of the cylinder is not perpendicular to the axis of cylinder?

Oleg,

Place a point at this location then use hole wizard and constrain it to this point.

Create a plane at an angle (which define the angle of the hole w.r.t axis of cylinder). Now use that plane to place and locate your hole.

Here is an example. How do I get tapped hole whose axis coincides with my axis?

Good morning Oleg,

Try the attached part.  You started everything ok and all you need to do is select the 3D sketch line and the end point and add a Plane, then draw your circle from there.

I made the hole 15mm, which you change.  You can also change the depth of the cut.

I probably said incorrectly. Sorry. Necessary based on a sketch created by the thread hole with a chamfer

Like this:

Good morning Oleg,

Review the attached.  With the hole on an angle the countersink does not show up very well.

What I did is;  Selected the Plane that I inserted and add a point at the end of your 3D sketch and then used the hole wizard.

For the thread appearance you need to add it to the face.  Go to your appearances and select Misc then select thread patterns.

Good morning, John.

I have exactly the same picture. That is, solidworks can not build threaded holes without additional constructions? I mean, not fully cutted chamfer.

Good morning Oleg,

What you need to do is add a deep enough counterbore before you add the countersink, so that the full circle is shown.

Later,

John

I have found that creating a simple non-threaded hole first (attached to a particular point on the surface of the cylinder).... completing the hole and then editing it to a threaded hole works ok.
