I am trying to set up a company hole table that everyone can use to better format hole notes on our drawings. I have it set up and working well but the one major annoyance is the &PATTERN_NO parameter. I want it included for when there is a pattern but when there is just one hole it displays "1X"
Is there a way to add a condition that will not display that is the &PATTERN_NO is 1.
Sample CALLOUT FORMAT: &PATTERN_NO X <CTRL-a>n<CTRL-b> &DIAMETER[.1] <CTRL-a>x<CTRL-b> &DRILL_DEPTH[.1] / &METRIC_SIZE &VAR_THREAD &THREAD_DEPTH[.1]
We are using CREO 4.0 and obviously it is not fixed until now.
I am creating a .hol-File for our company and by adding .....(&PATTERN_NO x)...... into my "DEFAULT_CALLOUT_FORMAT_DATA" I get "(1x)" if no pattern exist.
Is there another way to suppress this part inside the note if only one hole is present???
Nope. This is a (very frustrating) limitation of Creo. The pattern number should behave like the other hole note tokens and not show a value when a pattern doesn't exist. I guess someone needs to create a product idea...
