Hi Mr SPK from the USA,


Pro/e's help is very limited, it describes only being able to detail drilled holes. So I still don't know if I can list tapped holes.


I have managed to just list a

hole tables alpha leters

creo 2.0 m60
hole table, ie the default table for x y locations of holes
1 cs per view per table

is their a way to get say the second table to uses d,e,f holes and the next cs has holes g,h,i because the first table used a,b,c

vs now I have 3 tables for 3 cs's each table starts with the letter A

I manually make the hole tables vs using the hole table function in Creo. I found the hole table function did some weird naming of the title of the table that I didn't like and I could temporarily change it but not get it to stick thru a regeneration. Yes it was a bit more work but in the end I got the exact table I wanted that I wouldn't have to fix multiple times.

It looks like it names the hole table after the view and the CS.

table
hole table
update settings: pick the table to update
another dialog box opens that looks just like the dialog box that is open in the background
make the change to this dialog box
save and update.

(really 2 of the same dialog boxes and 1 of them woks, WTH.

I'm still amazed at this Unix op system trying to run in a window's op PC, PTC did a lame job with making it run in windows!

The csy is why I started making my own and abandoning the PTC generator. I have a drawing symbol that I used to indicated positive x, y and z. The hole table doesn't do a z direction either, just x and y which is fine for 2d but when I have holes that are above the xy plane (for instance on the xz plane) I didn't want to call out another x, y direction and possibly confuse someone after I already set (using datum locators) my x, y, and z directions for the model.

What keeps changing on the format between sheets? Text style, text placement, everything?

the text style for the most part.
I would add a picture but I have no idea how to get it under 19.5 KB

PTC says its a know issue with date code release M60
I'm told the format issue was fixed in M100, which does me no good as we will not be going to M100
