Friction Drilled/Tapped Holes Modeling and Sizes
Inch Thickness Gauge Standard
Friction Drilled Tapping is not applicable for Inch Thickness Sheetmetal
Metric Thickness Gauge Standard
Friction Drilled Tapping Holes Modeling Rules
When a cylindrical flange shape element is detected, it will be identified as a friction drilled/tapped hole.
|The inner diameter (d) should follow the same rules as for Tapped Hole Identification described above. Model the flange height (h) and thickness (t) to be less than or equal to the Sheet Thickness.|
Friction Drilled/Tapped Hole Size Selection
Friction drilled/tapped holes cannot be selected for perforated metals, shim plate materials (Cold Rolled Low Carbon Steel (for Shims) or 304 Stainless Steel (H) (for Shims)) or clear resin.
