Hello! Whether it is possible to make a script what to do round Hole model surfaces? Routine work would be easier!
Sorry for my Englisch...

Hi Riko - what method are you currently using to make holes? Are you possibly making an extruded cylinder solid to use as a cutting object in boolean difference?

If so then you can save some time by instead just drawing a circle curve object to use as the cutting object instead of making an extruded cylinder.

The booleans have automatic extrusion built into them, so you can create a hole just by drawing a circle and using the circle as the cutting object directly in boolean difference without doing any other steps.

Thank you Michael! I make a bike, and a lot of time leaves on creation of different holes, for bolts. It slows down process. It would be desirable as that to simplify this problems.

Hi Riko - but all you have to do currently is draw a circle and do boolean difference.

That's not very many steps already...

What kind of steps were you thinking of instead?

If you're placing holes in a repeated pattern drawing just one circle then allows you to use the array commands to replicate the circle into a pattern and then you can do just one boolean difference using all those replicated circles as the cutting objects.

Is it that you are always using a circle of a specific radius?

If that's the case then maybe the QuickCircle script would help, see here:

Hi Michael,

In relation to Riko's request the issue arises, for me anyway, when doing several blind holes.
I think I've asked the same question once before, it's a MCAD thing :)

re: Blind holes - Riko is that the issue, that you don't want a hole that goes all the way through the object?

Danny, to address that I've thought about adding an option to limit the cutting depth when using curves as cutting objects in boolean difference.

That'll work :) and as a special addition to us MCAD guy's you're going to have an option to put a 118 deg conical drill point on the end of that......you are thinking about it aren't you? ;)

Cheers

Hi Danny, not really sure yet if something like that would be part of the booleans or if that level would be some special hole command.

But a depth limit for booleans with cutting curves would be a good step anyway! :)

Maybe with 2 forms of curves? same size or not for the internal form
circle - circle
circle - close curve
Close curve - close curve
