Creating Holes in NX Modeling

You can create holes at the selected points on the body or on the points created in the sketch. To create holes, the “Hole” command is used in the NX modeling.

There are different hole types in the Hole command dialog box. You can change the hole style on the drop-down list at the top of the command dialog box.

Hole types:

  • Simple
  • Counterbored
  • Countersunk
  • Tapered
  • Threaded
  • Hole Series
