Ribbon UI Menu:
Note: Hole tool is only available in Platinum.
Works by using a Boolean subtract operation to remove hole volumes from a solid object (or add material).
Start with a solid object, like a box.
Create points for each hole you want to create (see Point). The points must lie on the face from which the hole will be removed.
Note: As long as Workplane by Face mode is checked in Drawing Aids, the points will be placed on the facet where your cursor is. (See Snap Settings ) Otherwise, you can use Workplane by Facet to place points on the correct facet.
- Activate Hole, and open the Properties.
- On the Hole page, select the type of hole. The types of holes are Plain hole, Boss.
- The other parameters on this page depend on the hole type.
- Close the Properties, and select the face on which the holes will be created.
- Select the points. Use the Shift key to select multiple points. The preview shows what the final result will look like.
- Select Finish from the local menu or Inspector Bar, and the holes are created.
You can edit hole parameters after they are created. See Editing 3D Objects using Selection Info
