Can you explain me the following callout?
Also can you pls explain how to select one in SolidWorks?
"DRILL F THRU TO 2.125φ
TAP 5/16-18 UNC-2B X THRU TO 2.125φ
USING .005φ OVERSIZED TAP
6 PLCS EACH END 60 APART"
This means you need to drill hole of size F till the dia 2.125. Then add a tap for size 5/16, pitch 18, class 2B in the same hole. You need to use .005 oversized tap. This needs to be on 6 places with holes 60 degree apart (Thanks for correcting it Kevin).
This is a customized hole call out and I believe you need to either modify the call out text file OR just add a hole call out once you add the tap then modify the call out.
Bu the callout says "THRU TO 2.125 DIA"?
What is Size "F" in drill hole.
How can I modify this a cutom callout in solidworks
Some US drill sizes are given as letters. See Wikipedia
"F" equates to 0.257inch or 6.528mm
Also when i'm selecting the hole feature and selecting the surface of the cylinder, the sketch is becoming 3D?
How can we make it into 2D Sketch
Check method 4 here http://gupta9665.com/drilling-a-hole-on-cylindrical-surface/
The holes are 60 degrees apart, not mm or inches. 6 holes at 60 deg apart basically means they are evenly spaced all around (360deg/6holes = 60deg/hole). Similarly, for 4 holes, it would read "4 holes at 90 degrees apart" (360deg/4holes = 90deg/hole).
Sorry for that Kevin but there was no degree sign with 60 and didn't thought it might be degree. Thanks for correcting me.
what is RMB here in your blog?
RMB = Right Mouse Button
Thank You Deepak for guiding me through the process
