Tips & Tricks: The Different of Smart Dimension & Hole-Callout


I create some holes using hole wizard and linear patterns it.


Then I make a new drawing from this part. When come to dimensioning, do you know that there is a different between smart dimension and hole-callout?


If I use smart dimension:
Only able to display the diameter of the hole.


If I use hole-callout:
I able to callout the number of instances (due to linear pattern), diameter and the depths of the holes.


Now you know the different. Don't make this mistake ya!~
