Obviously the drilling op only has one tool so all drilled holes will be the same size. It can be useful to drill big holes with a small bit but I don't think it should ever allow selection of a smaller hole than the current tool.RatonLaveur wrote: ↑Wed Jul 10, 2019 8:03 am- All holes, regardless of diameter and depth are detected which is fine.
- I can however imagine a case in which the pinboard would have alternate diameters, one for pins and one for threaded and fixturing.
- In this case, being able to process "groups" of holes" might be useful. I wonder if the PartDesign hole tool may help, since it processes holes in groups already for a given type of holes for each sketch...I wonder I wonder.
I remember we talked about sorting and filtering of holes - but I guess nobody every needed it badly enough.
Yeah, right! On a CNC machine none the less!
The argument is rather moot dear Mr. lampert, as Mr. sliptonic prompted me to try again and deeper than the extreme the surface:mlampert wrote: ↑Wed Jul 10, 2019 5:52 pmI remember we talked about sorting and filtering of holes - but I guess nobody every needed it badly enough.
On a grand scale I actually agree with that - sorting and filtering would be really handy for this scenario but it is probably a very special case. I can't remember ever seeing a model with more than 10 holes to be drilled. Unless you're making a pinhole board, a cribb board or work for the aerospace agency the # holes one typically deals with is faster sorted out manually than setting up a filter. Happy to be convinced otherwise though ...
