In the last Autodesk Inventor course, the subject of modifying the hole tables in the hole dialog box came up.
|How did we add this new standard?|
It's not something many of use do.
Frankly, that's because many times, it's not really required. Most of us can lead a long, happy life using the default values and carry on about our business.
But what if you have to work with a difficult material that needs different holes to be used? You may find it valuable to modify the chart. For example, a machinist colleague of mine once told me that Inconel is so difficult to tap, that the standard tap chart table is thrown out, and a custom table is used.
It all comes down to the thread.xls chart that maintains Inventor's thread information. By adding tabs, you can customize your hole charts!
|Just add the new tabs, and change the names!|
So for those rare cases, here's a video on how to customize your hole chart inside Inventor.
One more note, I'm trying a new method of creating videos, it's going to take some practice, so bear with me as I try the new process! I'm hoping that with a little practice and the riding of a learning curve, the videos will be better than ever!
