Allow the Creation of a Hole normal to a curved (non-planar) surface

Allow the Creation of a Hole normal to a curved (non-planar) surface

I know, it's probably already available in Creo 16, or whatever it's up to now, but I'm still back in the dark ages with WF2.

If I want to drill a hole into a non-planar surface, I have to create a datum plane for it to be normal to.

I just think there should be a better way...

You can create a datum point on the surface and then create a hole that references the datum point.  The axis of the hole will be normal to the surface at the point.  If you change the location of the point, the hole will update and always stay normal to the surface.  This option is available in WF 2.0 (an earlier)
