BSP THREADS IN THE HOLE FEATURE

Hi all, 

I wonder if anyone can help me out with this hateful piece of software. I am trying to put an 1/8BSP tapped hole in for a part. In the hole tool I have the options of ISO, UNF and UNC thread classes and BSPT, NPT, or NPTF if it was a tapered hole. Why not BSP? God I wish I could go back to Catia where things work as you want them too.

The hole files are just text files, create your own for BSP.

I have found that the drill diameter PTC uses for their hole files does not align with standard drill sizes for all holes. I have edited the files many times to get the proper data needed for manufacturing.

Ok, how do you get to the text files to add new data?

The hole files are in <Creo_loadpoint>\Common Files\text\hole.

BSP.hol would be a valid name.

Look at the other files o get a feel for the file syntax.
