Hole feature - Exit Counterbore?

I swear that Creo can create an exit counterbore with the hole feature...but maybe I'm mistaken?

Re: Hole feature - Exit Counterbore?

You can in a fashion. You would need to use the sketch option to define the shape of the hole, but i have always thought of this as been pointless (unless a thread is present), might as well just make a revolved cut. You can add an 'exit countersink' but you require a counterbore. Frustrating that you can do one but not the other.

Hi @John.Pryal,

 

The sketch solution is the workaround for now, but having an "Exit Counterbore" would be a nice addition to the hole feature.

 

Thanks!
