hi,

 

the "tap drill" option in hole note in idw drawing is gray out. so I was playing around with it and fix the problem luckily.

I go to hole feature model and change thread class from 2B to 3B. then, the "tap drill" option is turn on in idw drawing.

 

is this correct way to do it? i have few drawing to fix it. is there a faster way?

 

inventor 2013 sp2 and window 7

 

thanks.

Sounds like you are doing nothing more the giving the system a kick in the pants to wake up!!  :smileylol:

What happens if you change it back to class 2B?  The class change should have nothing to do with whether it is greyed out or not. 

 

The only other faster way might be iLogic.

the "tap drill" option still on after back to "2B". the class change should have nothing to with options, however, that is only way i can find out. is this a bug?

It might be an issue (bug).  One way to tell is if you can replicate this behavior in another brand new model/drawing.

If it happens again then I would say it is an issue.
