Can we please update the ‘ Data Entry Window ‘ for Countersunk Holes?
And for the ‘ Drill Point Angle ‘?
I use 82 Deg. Flat Head Socket Head Cap Screws. I have to enter 49 Deg.
to have an 82 Deg. included angle in MTS, doesn't really make sense to me.
If you purchase a countersink, the choices are usually 60 Deg., 82 Deg. Or
100 Deg. You should be able to enter one of these common choices in the
Data Entry Window.
Now that I have seen the example of the drill point in the Inspector,
I am really confused. The example shows a 110 Deg. drill point, which I
don’t think is even available as a standard drill point. If you dimension
the angle in MTS it is 139.9 Deg. To obtain a 110 Deg. angle in MTS you
have to enter 124.938 Deg. in the Inspector.
I use 118 Deg. and 135 Deg. drill points, and have to enter 120.938 Deg.
for the 118 Deg. drill point in MTS, and 112.438 Deg. for the 135 Deg. drill point
in MTS. Please explain this. I know this sounds like a minor issue, but we
should try to have a software that offers industry standard sizes.
Thanks,
Larry

I looked at this countersink command after reading this odd input on the data entry window. I find the the sink angle is misleading or not working properly. I have never done countersink in CAD but I can understand if you are drawing something that requires a 82 degrees that someone would be prone to input half of that value on the data entry of 41 but when you do an angle analysis, the angle becomes 98 degrees.

Maybe someone can elaborate how the sink angle is not working or how it should work.

Hello Larry

The following issues were addressed in the 1432 builds.

--Drill Point angle aded to DataEntry
--Drill Point angle now uses industry standard measurement
--You can now get the full industry standard range 60 through 150 degrees


This method only goes into effect for newly created holes. Old holes will use the previous method.
