I cannot find a place to set default hole settings in IV 2011. Please tell me where it is.
Sad to say, it can't keep the default termination setting in Inv 2011.
Actually, we were aware of the default termination issue for hole feature. And we were already worked on it. Hopefully it can be addressed in future releases.
Add drill point angles to that list; not everyone uses 118° (135° here).
I thought someone once advised to set such defaults in an ipt template file by creating them then deleteing the part, with result being the users' settings would remain. I have to confess I've never attempted this so I don't know if it actually works.
I have to post my own rant here. I know users have been asking for this type of fix or change for several releases, but things like this continue to fall off of Autodesk's to do list. Yet, we can create a new (and nearly useless) Ribbon Menu (I'm sorry but it is way slower than the classic menu. I haven't use 2012 yet so my opinion of the new "gestures" menu remains to be seen), Another is representation functionality in part files (.ipt), a more user friendly text editor (with spell checking!) among others.
Thank you Autodesk for finally making the plunge into multi-threading with your latest release. Users finally have hope that their expensive multi-core workstations will actually make full use of the software. You made in-roads in the past several releases adding new functionality (sheet metal, molding design, frame generator, etc.), but how about looking back to the basics and fixing some of these core problems that we have lived with from the beginning.
I have to admit to having all the same little gripes as well as some of my own. I would still call myself an Autodesk fanboy though.
1. Being able to set the default for break lines and spacing. (plus any more defaults would be great via the app options.xml)
2. Tab spacing in the text editor so i can line up sentances and such properly.
3. Being able to set Thread Feature to visible by default.
4. Ability to control layer visibilty in the styles and not have the template warm me about it on opening.
Really basic simple things that always get passed over in favour of the next big feature the marketing people can use.
Oh and if you could steal the 'Magnet lines' feature from Solidworks that would be great.
Autodesk, what is the state of issue #674900
Default for termination should be Through Holes not Distance.
Regarding the issue of user-customizable defaults/favourites it is a wish list item for now. I mean we have to address this across the board.
I have logged issue 674900 which talks about the following issues.
Problem #1: Default for termination should be Through Holes not Distance.
Any way to customize the Hole dialog box settings?
Thanks a lot
