Allow hole types to be changed in patterns

Allow hole types to be changed in patterns

Currently, in order to change the type of a hole in a pattern, the pattern must be deleted, the hole redefined and then the hole re-patterned.  When the model gets to the detail stage, if the engineer or designer has used straight holes instead of tapped holes, or vice versa, the detailer has to delete and rework all of the hole patterns, which also causes the axis to be renumbered.  This can then lead to downstream feature failures and assembly failures.  In all, this lack of functionality can cause many lost days of work.

PTC, please allow holes in patterns to be changed to any type of hole without having to delete the pattern or renumber the axes.

This is the same idea as this one which it looks like you already voted on:

Patterned hole redefinition

Duplicate?

I am closing voting on this idea as it is a duplicate.

Best,

Ah, I see.  It didn't come up in a search for patterned hole.

Can you update the tags so that it is easier to find?
