Hello, we are using holes in our constructions that consists of 3 holes on top of eachother (with difrent Ø values for seating depth) each hole is also chamfered. 


looksl ike this:

Is there a way to make theese holes in one go? (using a sketch with points marking the holes), right now im using the share sketch feature and putting down 3difrent holes on top of eachoter, and a chamfer, so would be nice if they could be saved as a premade hole. 


saves time and having to memorise the difrent depths for the difrent dimensions.

Looks a lot like a "Taper Tapped Hole" available in the Hole command dialog box?
