Standard Hole Sizes Dialog Box

Defines the standard hole sizes DFMXpress uses to validate parts.

To display the Standard Hole Sizes dialog box, click Settings from the DFMXpress pane. Under Standard Hole Sizes, click Edit.

Validation units
Specifies English or metric sizes to validate parts. Choose one:

Use document units

Uses standard hole sizes listed in Standard English sizes or Standard Metric sizes as determined by the part units. For example, if the part uses mm or cm, DFMXpress uses Standard Metric sizes.

English

Uses standard hole sizes listed in Standard English sizes.

Metric

Uses standard hole sizes listed in Standard Metric sizes.

English and metric

Uses standard hole sizes listed in Standard metric sizes and Standard English sizes.

DFMXpress converts units between English and metric as needed. For example, if you select English but validate a part with metric holes, DFMXpress converts the sizes listed in Standard English sizes to metric to compare to your part.

Validation tolerance

Specifies the tolerance used to compare part holes to standard hole sizes. For example, if the tolerance is 0.01 mm and a standard hole size is 0.15 mm, DFMXpress treats holes between 0.14 and 0.16 as valid.

Select mm for millimeters or in for inches. DFMXpress converts the value to the other unit system as needed. For example, if you select English and metric for Validation units and specify a tolerance of 0.01 mm, DFMXpress applies a tolerance of 0.00039 inches to English hole sizes.

Standard English sizes

Specifies standard English hole sizes, in inches. Not available if Validation units is Metric.
