CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Thank's a lot

But i don't anderstand the way to use it ?

best regards

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Hi Pierre,

in future you can define different hole notes for different hole types.

Just add the DEFAULT_CALLOUT_FORMAT_DATA to the end of your *.hol file.

You define the CALLOUT_FORMAT for each type of hole in a column of the table.

I attached an example for you.

Just copy it to your computer and set the Pro/E option "hole_parameter_file_path" to this directory. Then place a new hole and you will see how it works.

If you still have problems please let me know.

Regards,

Oliver

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

thank you for all these explanations
but I do not understand the impact of changes on the notes (for exemple for a M30 the nte is m30 that'all)

best regards

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

in the last column of the DEFAULT_CALLOUT_FORMAT_DATA table you find CALLOUT_FORMAT

Here you can define the note text for each hole type.

I just placed the &Screw_Size folowed by a consecutive number.

Please do the following.

Open a part and place a new hole.

Select the thread series A_DIN13-1.

Then open the dashboard register "Note"

You now see the note "M10" for example. If you now add a counterbore the note will change to "M10 2".

If you remove the thread you will get the note "M10 22" and so on.

With DEFAULT_CALLOUT_FORMAT_DATA you will be able to place different hole notes for different hole types.

Oliver

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

ok i find the probleme. You have to define hole_parameter_file_path anyway if the default folder (hole)...

I will work of the link between the ligne et size

Thank's a lot

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention.

I have been waiting for this since they revamped the hole tool several releases back. I spent a considerable amount of time in the past trying to get something to work. The users would end up importing a standard note from text file after the hole was created and wait till the note was shown on the drawing to fix the total quantity.

The set-up of this is still a little hokey but it seems to work. Modifying text files in some location specified by a config.pro option is so archaic. Maybe Creo will have a single centralized GUI interface with plenty of explanatory images and previews for managing all of your settings and modeling and drafting standards.

You still can't modify notes while you are creating the hole.

The quantity still needs some work.

Oliver,

I added your "A_DIN13-1.hol" file to my hole directory, but it does not show up in my drop-down menu when I go to insert a new hole.

I closed and reopend ProE 5.0 before doing this, but it still does not show up as a kind of .hol file I can use.

Do you have any ideas of what I need to do to be able to see your ".hol" file options?

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Hi Luke,

the hole file seems to be ok.

Not sure why you can't select it.

I need additional information:

1. Which Creo/ProE version are you working with?

2. Move the ISO to another folder - can you still see the ISO in your pulldown?

3. Do you use the Creo option "hole_parameter_file_path"?

Oli

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Thanks for replying so quickly, Oliver!

To answer your questions,

1. Creo Elements/Pro 5.0

2. Yes I can still see it (strangely enough). I moved my ISO_SES.hol file to another location, but it still shows up in the pulldown.

3. Yes (see attached screenshot. I think it proves that I am using the Creo option correctly)hole_parameter_filepath.JPG

Re: CALLOUT_FORMAT in *.hol files

Hello Luke,

I think you add my hole file on the wrong location.

Have you copied it to the Creo directory or to the "hole_parameter_file_path" directory?

If you remove a hole file and it is still visible, then something is strange.

Another important thing is the name of the THREAD_SERIES. I think the name has to be unique. So if you try to add "ISO" twice I think only one will be shown (but not sure about this).
