THREAD DIRECTION IN IDW HOLE NOTE

Aside from manually adding RH or LH to a hole note leader, anybody know of a way of getting the HOLE Direction (left hand or right hand) into the leader note?

The one way would be to edit the "Threads.xls" file and edit and add/insert rows for the RH and LH threads. Inventor pulls the data from this file, so adding the direction to the designation column will be read into the feature and then the drawing.

Thanks Blair.

 

Editing the Thread.xls file works, but is at best a work around. After the editing you then need to select the thread size with the LH additiona nd still select the Left hand direction radio button.

 

I'll add this to the IdeaStation as a feature request. Thanks again.
