Beginner Questions

Hello. 

 

I have some basic Parametric Questions that I am trying to find the answer to:

 

1)  Standard hole wizard uses 75% thread engagement by default and uses the necessary tap drill on the drawing, but I work with a lot of steel parts. Can I change the engagement to 50% so I don't have 75% engagement tap drill call-outs on the drawing? English J drill instead of an F, etc. i.e. the hole wizard is automatically selecting a pilot drill that I do not want and my machine shop has definitely let me know that they would have a hard time tapping at higher percentages. . 

 

2) I cannot hide my model tree/feature tree on the left side. The toggle button is greyed out. What configuration option would allow me to turn this function on so I can get the model tree/feature tree out of the way.

 

3) The drawing/sketch zooms out as soon as I change a dimension. How do I disable this?

 

any information is helpful. thank you!

Hi,

1.] probably you can create your own hole definition table ... look into Creo help

2.] if you want to hide model tree click the small button in lower left corner of Creo window

3.] I guess user cannot disable sketcher zooming

Yep. I just did that and it is working great after some research. problem solved. 

 

2.] if you want to hide model tree click the small button in lower left corner of Creo window

fantastic. works great. problem solved.

I believe this is a configuration file setting. I forgot which one it was but I will find it. 

 

Thank you for the assistance.

 

 

Re: Beginner Questions

It's probably

 

sketcher_refit_after_dim_modify

 

BTW, searching the configuration settings is pretty easy - also can search through the descriptions of settings...
