Elaborate Automatic Holes If you move the bolt, also the holes are moved, and, in this case they are no more visible. This is the standard behavior of IC-Mech, that allow you to automatically update the holes as soon as you move the screw.

In order to avoid this behavior you can do one of these operations:

  • Disable the behavior in the IPROSettings: This is a general setting, and the hole will not be elaborated when you will move a screw; see Create Hole Locked to Fastener
  • Keep pressed the Shift key during the TriBall translation.
  • Create a configuration. In a configuration the holes created by IPROFasteners are not moved. (If you want to have a configuration where the the automatic update of the holes is active start the name of the configuration with + or _ chars).
