    Hole Wizard Callout for Custom Hole

    Pk M



      I am trying to create custom hole feature for one threaded insert we always use.

      I wanted to create this feature so that anybody can simply drag create same hole and callout same way in the drawing.

      I created this feature from "legacy" hole type in hole wizard as it needs two counterbore operations. But I am unable to customize hole callout.

      This hole needs 3 operations.

      - One thru hole

      -one counterbore to certain depth

      -2nd counterbore to certain depth.


      I tried tweaking "calloutformat"text file. But I am not able to figure out correct hole type for this legacy type hole so that it will recognized by"hole callout" in the drawing?


      I greatly appreciate your help.
