Drilling Tapered Holes In Siemens NX(Illustrated Expression)

In this article we will show you how to obtain standard-sized tapered hole in parts of Siemens NX. You know that the standard holes are generaly used in machine parts and also tapered holes are generally used for bolt assemblies in mechanical systems. Siemens NX has a special tool to obtain these standard size holes. We start with the how to drill standard tapered holes to parts by using Hole command in Siemens NX.
