using hole feature for thread and screw in Pro E ? View All
I am using pro E wildfire 4.0 at work for designing. I want to know how do i use the hole feature ? i generally do 2 step process i.e., make a cut of circular section and then use helical sweep to make it. but i am using lot of time i see the hole feature on right hand side menu. i tried using it but after choosing diameter when i select the surface the green tick is not highlighted. can u please help me and tell me direct step to do a hole using pro E ?

Once you select the hole feature from the right handside toolbar, click on the face that you want your hole started. This should place a hole on the part. Then you can either grab the green ticks with your mouse and drag them to a side or surface or you can click on the placement tab, which is located just under the hole types in the upper left of the screen. There you can specify an angle, offset or several other placement types. Hope this helps!

thanks a lot jason. i worked out the exact way u described and i got the correct procedure. But it doesnt create a hole with threading. if its just a hole it creates isnt it easier to do protrusion/remove material? i though with indication of drill , it will (hole feature will ) create hole n threading in 1 step.

This procedure wont actually show threads that you can see on your drawing, but by clicking on the "create standard hole" button just above the placement tab, you can specify tap sizes. This feature lets you show thread style, fine or course, diameter and thread count, depth, and allows you to specify countersinks and counterbores. Again, there wont be actual threads that show up on your part, but if you click "ok" the information about your hole will be displayed on the drawing. There are some useful bits of information that an extrude can not do. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
