Hole table in drawing


Hole table in drawing


I am trying to use hole tables in drawing instead of coordinates and cannot find how to show hole tolerances (for ex. H7) and position tolerances (+-0.02). Is ther some way how to show both in the hole table?




Thanks in advance. T.

Holes were placed with existing tables and were assigned tolerances.

Dimensions were also adjusted and toleranced accordingly.

This information is carried into the tables as such:


then switch your dimensions (info > switch dims)


Put these values (only "&d<value>") in your chart, like so:


notes are a bit different, but not too much, get the name from your model tree


I think that answers your question.

Hi Ron,

I think I did not explain the problem exactly (I am sorry for my english) but I am just trying to find some easier way to make drawings that include many holes - it just takes long time and so on.

Here is one example:


so far i was just dimensioning all holes by coordinates. Now i noticed there exists a functionality called "hole table". The table is very easy and fast to make but there are two things i would need to add in it: a hole tolerance and a hole position tolerance.

For ISO standard models, you may want to investigate the use of tolerance tables.

It looks to be a little involved (with all the class types) but may be what you are looking for regarding "automatic" tolerancing of hole/shaft fits.

look here Tutorial: Support for Tolerance Tables for ISO Models

Putting this creo assigned variable name into a charted table differently from what I've shown is beyond my capabilities at this point.  I've never had a need.

I'm sure it can be done, but I can not provide the solution (yet).  Perhaps another user can help.


Thank you Ron
