As already mentioned above, hole note templates also serve as a filter, when it is necessary to select the holes for which the note was created. When selecting different notes, different combinations of holes to which the note can be assigned will be displayed in the part.



Different note filters display different sets of potentially selected holes

Different note filters display different sets of potentially selected holes



As the images show, once the note is selected, all holes in the part are highlighted using different color:

Green marks the holes that satisfy the filtering criteria of the active note. These holes can be potentially added to a set and the selected note can be assigned to them.
Red marks the holes that do not satisfy the filtering criteria of the active note; these holes cannot be selected for noting.


If you have several notes with different filtering criteria, you will see how the composition of holes suitable and unsuitable for noting changes as you switch between different notes.


Once you have selected a note, you have to create a set of holes to which the note will be applied. Blue frame highlighting the green hole shows that the hole is included in the set.


Selected Hole


There are several ways to include holes in a set:


1.By selecting them with a cursor.


2.By framing the area within which the holes to be noted are located.
3.By clicking the Select All button – all green holes will be selected.


4.By clicking the - button, the contents of the set will be deleted.


5.Holes are removed by selecting them with a cursor while pressing and holding the "Ctrl" key.


6.The contents of the set are deleted by clicking the delete button Clean selection set.



Additional options for creating a set


The user can additionally enable/disable holes depending on the side of part on which they are located:

Top – holes are on the top of the part.
Opposite – holes are on the surface opposite to the top of the part.
Side – holes are on the sides of the part.
Slant – holes are on the slanted face of the part.


To make it easier for the user to identify the top and bottom of the part, top and bottom symbols are displayed at the centre of the part when the command is used:
