cylinder hole

Wish when you created cylinder you could add a hole size you wanted and a depth or through  on center.
It would be easy to add these to the 3d menu while creating a cylinder. This would also create a tube at the same time or just a cylinder without a hole.

In order to add hole first draw cylinder then insert a point by selecting the the "By Facet" Workplane on the facet where you want to add hole.Go to "Modify"-->"Modify 3D Objects" and select Hole.Click on the point that you'e inserted and a preview for the hole''ll be shown.Enter the diameter,scale depth or select hole type accordingly in the properties window then select finish from local menu and hole inserted.

If using Platinum, I think it would be easier to Simple Extrude a Circle, then select the extrusion and use the "Offset" option in Properties/Selection Info palette to make the hole. You could set the Offset option in Properties prior to extruding, but then you would need to turn it back to zero.

You can extrude a circle but when you want to alter it you have to redo it all again. With it being right in the cylinder menu you can pick cylinder you created and just change size and depth.

You wouldn't have to "redo" it if you use compound profiles the part tree.

As Nikki says, if you use the "Use Compound Profile" option when extruding a Circle, you can select the circle afterwards in the Selection Info palette and give it a different radius. The extrusion updates to the new size. If you want to change the Offset, select the extrusion and make your changes in the Selection Info palette.

Shelling's another option, with an absolute relationship to the cylinder's diameter instead of being a discrete parameter.

I will give that a try see if it works haven't  tried that way yet. but think its easier if it is in one place to change it.
Thank You
