Standard Tap Depth

Status: Implemented
by Employee BryanKelley on ‎10-31-2012 01:25 PM

I would like to have Tapped Holes follow each Standard for the Tap Depth rather than relying upon user knowledge.

Status: Implemented
This idea has been implemented within Autodesk Inventor 2015. Special thanks to everyone who cast your Kudo for it. Enhancements have been made within the Modeling environments, when creating holes, to default to the thread and hole depth values specified within the updated thread.xls file. Please be sure to check this out in Autodesk Inventor 2015. Thanks!

I'd like this too, as long as the standard tap depth is an option that is:

a) Easily overridden and

b) User editable (maybe in the thread spreadsheet)

Yes - I agree. I would like it to default to thd depth + 2*pitch

i like the idea.

 

i would also like to see some of the user input boxes positioned better in the dialogue box... they do not seem to flow logically and are not all positioned relative to the dimension that they relate to.

Something I asked for years ago.  I would like to see the depth controlled by an excel sheet (like the Clearance.xls) so everyone can edit it to suite their own "standards".

I would like to see this implemented too. This should not be a big alteration I think, and would provide more standardisation.
