I created these hole charts long time ago. I cannot remember where I crab the diameter 7.3 from. You are right. It seems like this diameter might not be correct.
I think this diameter depends on a lot of different things.
I recommend to contact the producer of the inserts to get the correct values.
Of course you can modify the hole chart I have uploaded to your needs. This should only be a example on how we use the inserts in our tool.
Could have come from another standard but ASME B18.29.2M list the minimum major diameter for STI threaded hole data for a M6x1 insert as 7.300.
this might be possible. I have double checked this.
In the Machinery Handbock the "Min. Major Diam./All Classes" is "7.300".
I think I have taken the value from there.
Heavy duty offering. Thanks! Sorry I got pulled away from this stuff.
I am looking thru all your information.
Is IFX on standard loads? I'm wondering if we have the ability to use it.
a free version of IFX is shipped with Creo since version 3.0.
This document shows the difference between the free and the paid version:
The inserts stuff cannot be used with the free version. But if you want I can send you a demo version for IFX so you can test the functionality.
