Displays the options that you use to create a single hole trace in the model.

 Single Hole Properties

Activates the Single Hole Properties dialog box, which you use to view and modify the properties of the hole trace that you are about to place in the model. For more information, see Hole Trace Properties Dialog Box.

Select Structure

Select the structure in which to place the hole.

 Select Outfitting Part

Select one or more pipe, HVAC duct, cable tray, equipment, or other outfitting objects that penetrate the selected structure object in which you want to place a hole trace.

 Sketch

Select this option to sketch the hole trace in the Draft 2D environment. For more information, see Sketch Options below.

Finish

Places the hole trace in the model.

 Reject

Clears the selected object.

 Accept

Accepts the selected object.

Hole name

Specifies the name for the hole trace.

Parent system

Select the parent system for the hole trace.

Hole Clearance Rule

Specify the rule that controls the clearance around the outfitting part in the hole trace. For more information about clearance rules, see Best Fit Clearance Rules.

Opening design type

Specifies the design opening property for the opening or hole. The default value is Permanent Access. The list is defined by the CutoutDesignType codelist.

Opening planning method

Specifies the planning opening property for the opening or hole. The default value is Design. The list is defined by the CutoutPlanningMethod codelist.

Opening production method

Specifies the production opening property for the opening or hole. The default value is Cut. The list is defined by the CutoutProductionMethod codelist.

For more information about single hole trace opening properties, see Single Hole.

Sketch Options

 Sketching Plane

Specify the sketching plane for the hole trace. This is the first step in defining the hole trace.

Add Intersecting Item

Select objects in the model that intersect the sketching plane that you want to use as reference geometry. These extra objects appear in the Draft 2D environment.

Add Projection Item

Select objects in the model that do not intersect the sketching plane that you want to use as reference geometry. These extra objects are projected onto the sketching plane and appear in the Draft 2D environment.

Constraint Table

Activates the Constraint Table dialog from which you can modify sketch curve constraint values without going back into the Sketch 2D environment. A sketch curve must have already been defined in Sketch 2D before this option is available.

  • Type - Displays the constraint type. You cannot edit the type.

  • Name - Displays the constraint name. You cannot edit the name.

  • Value - Defines the constraint value. Include the units of measurement when you edit the value: deg, mm, in, and so forth. You cannot edit a value if it is derived by a formula.

  • Value Type - Displays the value type: angle, radial, linear, and so forth. You cannot edit the value type.

  • Formula - Displays the formula used to derive the constraint value. You cannot edit formulas, nor can you edit values derived by formulas.

  • Layers - Filters which constraints display in the dialog based on the Sketch 2D layer to which they belong. By default, all constraints on all layers display.

 Sketch 2D

Activates the Draft 2D view in which you can draw the hole trace.

Auto Import Enable/Disable

Allows the software to automatically add all objects that are relative to the object to be sketched to a select set. Items in the select set are highlighted in the graphics view and in the Workspace Explorer. If no objects are added to the select set, the software displays a message in the status bar. This option is only available when you use the Add Intersecting Item or the Add Project Item option.

 Coincident Plane

Specifies that you want to sketch the hole on the plane that you select. For more information, see Define a coincident plane.

 Offset from Plane

Specifies a sketching plane for the hole that is offset from a plane that you select. If you choose this option, you must define the offset distance. For more information, see Define an offset plane.

 Angle from Plane

Specifies a sketching plane for the hole that is at a specified angle from a plane that you select. If you choose this option, you must define an axis of rotation and the angle or slope. For more information, see Define plane using angle from plane.

 Plane by Point and Vector

Specifies the sketching plane for the hole using two points to define a vector normal to the sketching plane and a third point to define the sketching plane position along the vector. For more information, see Define a plane using a point and a normal vector.

 Plane by Three Points

Specifies the sketching plane for the hole using three points that you specify in the model. For more information, see Define a plane using three points.

Plane by Vectors Normal

Defines a plane normal to a selected plane, and coincident with a vector between two selected points. For more information, see Define plane by vectors normal.

Maintain the relationships on the plane with its definition method

Maintains the relationships of the plane to the definition method and the geometry used by the definition method. For example, a plane created with Offset from Plane  maintains the relationship of the selected plane and the Offset value. Otherwise, this option disables the relationships of the plane to allow moving of the plane.

Offset

Specify the offset distance for the sketching plane from the selected plane. You can specify the offset dynamically in graphics or by typing the distance. The Offset option is available only when you use the Offset from Plane option.

Angle

Specify the angle at which to place the sketching plane relative to the selected plane. You must define the axis of rotation using two points before you can define the angle. The Angle option is available only when you use the Angle from Plane option.

Step

Specifies the offset or angle step.

 Select Vector Normal to Plane

Select the vector normal to the sketching plane. This option is available only when you use the Plane by Point & Vector option.

 Define Point

Specify the point along the vector at which to place the sketching plane. This option is available only when you use the Plane by Point & Vector option.

 Define Point 1

Specify the location of the first of three points that defines the sketching plane. This option is available only when you are using the Plane By Three Points option.

 Define Point 2

Specify the location of the second of three points that defines the sketching plane. This option is available only when you are using the Plane By Three Points option.

 Define Point 3

Specify the location of the third of three points that defines the sketching plane. This option is available only when you are using the Plane By Three Points option.

Select Plane

Select the plane to which your sketching plane is to be normal. This option is available only when you are using the Plane By Vectors Normal option.

Select First Point

Specify the location of the first vector point. Your sketching plane is parallel to this vector. This option is available only when you are using the Plane By Vectors Normal option.

Select Second Point

Specify the location of the second vector point. Your sketching plane is parallel to this vector. This option is available only when you are using the Plane By Vectors Normal option.
