    Changing Hole Sizes in GrabCAD Print

    November 3, 2020

    You thought GrabCAD print was just for assigning your print parameters, didn’t you? Well, it is so much more. Buried under that sleek, easy-on-the-eyes interface is a very powerful piece of software. GrabCAD Print doesn’t just help you assign part attributes, it can also alter part geometry.

    After receiving some questions from customers about a recent Video Tech Tip I produced that involved installing heat-set inserts into a part, I wanted to dive more into adjusting hole sizes for hardware like inserts or even thru bolts. In the following video, I will show you how to change the diameter of a hole directly within the GrabCAD Print environment.
