The CentreHoles tool is used to create Centre Hole on the shaft part. This dialog box is displayed every time you drop the Centre Holes tool on the part or when you edit an existing Centre hole.
The Center holes can be placed only on cylindrical parts, drop the tool on an circular edge or face (otherwise you will be shown a warning message).
You can change the type of centre hole by clicking a drop down button.
When you change the type of the hole, the dialog box updated the Norme text box.
In the status bar, it shows a warning message if the diameter of the hole is not compatible with the diameter of the shaft.
