Standard hole dimensions


New member
Is it possible to set prefix for standard holes. E.g. if I create standard hole of M20, the shown dimension in the drawing would be 20, or if I create BSP threaded hole, for 1/2" hole the dimension would be 20,955. Is it possible to prefix the main diameter of the hole with the text, depending on the hole type used (I suspect this shold be set in HOL file)?

I had the same problem, but now I found the solution: standard holes have their own notes that you can put in your drawing with the "show/erase" window.

the note that will be shown depends on the hole file you have (.hol file), anyway you can customize it quite easily.
