Drilling

Post Posted: 26.11.2008 04:36

I did a drilling for two lag bolts using any contact surface but now need the drillings to appear at the geometry points. Confused

The drillings in the rafter can be pushed easily in the process list.
But the other 2... I would delete them and make them new with Dicam 3-04-6 (point to point).

Hi Der_ Planer,

How do I get a point thats perpendicular to the point thats currently in the plane of the two contact surfaces? Let say 4" into the tie beam so I can do a point to point drilling.

Thanks!

Hi Kayaker,

I created the drillings a little different. First I laid out some assisting geometry in wall design and used D-CAM premium to copy the lines to the beam center for locating the exact position of the drillings. You can also do the same with your D-CAM premium but those that do not have premium can easily create and copy points instead. Next I used 3-04-5 & 3-04-6 to create the drillings.

Hi Kayaker,

Here is another way that I would rather use. This time I created some assisting geometry in D-CAM. Next I created the drilling using 3-04-3 just as you originally did except I only created the drilling in one location. Now I created a temporary object and transferred all the drillings to the object as a #4 process. Then I deleted the original drillings on the beams and moved the object to the correct drilling location and copied another one to the second location. Now you can save this object into the d-cam library or wall design and position it where you like and reprocess with 3-1-9. You can then delete the temporary object if needed.

Thanks guys,

Once I transfer these processes to the temporary object I like to save the object into the Wall Macro Library found in Wall Design. It just make it so easy to position the object from the Wall Marco. Just remember that you have to go to D-CAM to reprocess the beams.
