    Instance count on in-line holes.

    Robert Bartz

      My company requires dimension for in-line holes to begin with 2X,3X, etc. if they are in-line.

       

      Does Solidworks have a way to do this on a drawing or in a model(by picking similar X/Y aligned dimensions)? I saw limited functionality in the DimExpert.

       

      Thanks,

          I would probably just manually type the instance count in front of the dimension. If you want it to be linked to the model then all I can think of is when you start a hole wizard hole choose 3D sketch, and then instead of 'through all' set the end condition to 'up to next', and then place one instance of the hole in line on each section to cut.
