Holes 3 Basic Types Drilled - Straight Cylinder Counterbore - Two cylinders, one on top of the other. Used to receive a bolt head. Countersink - A cone on top of a cylinder. Used to accept a flat head bolt/screw.
Hole Types Hole Counterbore - receives a bolt head Countersink - receives a flat head screw or bolt
Hole Feature Placement • A hole feature requires a hole center point sketched on an existing feature. You can also select endpoints or center points on existing geometry as hole centers.
Threaded Holes • Threads can be added to holes for bolts or screws. There are several types of threads series. Each is identified by their: • Major Diameter • Threads Per Inch • Thread Series Identification • Ex. 9/16 - 12 UNC • This represents a thread with a major diameter of 9/16”, 12 threads per inch and is a standard Unified National Course thread.
Thread Patterns • UNF - Unified National File • UNC - Unified National Course • UNS - Unified National Special • UNEF - Unified National Extra Fine • ISO - International Standards • UN - American National (External Thread) • UNR - American National (Internal Thread)

Pitch Depth Flat Root American National Thread Very similar to Unified National Threads but has a Flat Root.
