 Creates a single hole trace on a structural part that is associated with one or more outfitting parts such as pipe, HVAC duct, cable tray, equipment, or Hanger with Hole Aspect. A single hole trace is created around all of the selected parts.

Hole traces are associated with the outfitting part and the structural part. If either the outfitting parts or the structure is modified, the software automatically updates the hole trace.

When you place a single hole trace, you can define opening properties to better reflect the more granular details of the purpose of the opening or hole, when it is cut, and how it is produced. These properties are grouped into the following categories:

Opening Design Type Properties

Represent the functional purpose of the opening or hole. The design property reflects why the opening exists in the model. Typical design properties include:

  • Permanent Access

  • Temporary Access

  • Lightening (Weight Reduction)

  • Air Escape

  • Liquid Escape

  • Air/Liquid Escape

  • Foothold

  • Martyr

Opening Planning Method Properties

Represent the staging of the opening or hole. The planning property denotes the point in the design and production lifecycle when the cut is physically made. Typical planning properties include:

  • Design

  • Shop (Assembly)

  • Field (Ship)

Opening Production Method Properties

Represent the production method of the opening or hole. The planning property denotes whether the cut is truly cut from the system or part, whether it is marked, bridged, and so forth. Typical production properties include:

  • Cut (Default)

  • Mark

  • Bridge

  • Chill Hole Patch

  • When you create or edit a single hole, the dialog box title displays the plate system name using the format Plate System: <name of the plate system>.

  • When you create or edit a single hole on a plate part, the dialog box title displays the plate part name using the format Plate Part: <name of the plate part>.
