The Hole feature creates three types of drilled holes: simple, counter bored, and countersunk.
You can reference other model geometry to set the location, diameter, and depth of the hole. When the ball manipulator is active, you can select points, lines, and edges for location references. When the arrow manipulator is active, you can click a face to set the hole depth.
You can edit a hole feature by right-clicking on it in the browser and selecting Edit Hole.
