    Need to change direction on hole going thru rolled plate (not radially, must be plumb)

    Dave Krum

      Hello All,

      Question on using the hole wizard.  I need to put 2 countersunk hole going thru 2 pieces of steel.  The base piece is rolled and the hole wizard is locating the hole at the proper center point at the face but its orienting the hole going thru both pieces radially.  I need the hole to go thru plumb.  I drew in the 3d sketch line showing the proper direction that the hole must follow but not sure how to get hole wizard to apply the correct direction.  I've attached 2 screenshots as well as the model.  I thought I remember reading that I can use a 3d sketch line for positioning but not sure.  I realize this isn't a standard machining operation (to not go in radially) but the guys in the machine shop somehow did it, I'm just trying to update my model and shop drawing for record.  Any help is appreciated!
