Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part

Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part

Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

RE: Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part

I have reported this to GTAC and they confirmed this behavior.
No solution yet.

(Assuming you are using Wave-links to mirror a part, if not please provide your work method)

RE: Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part

This has to be the worst software I've ever used. The number of issues with this garbage seems to be infinite.

Thank you,

RE: Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part

Our experience hasn't been great either, we moved to NX 2 years ago and we are still trying to work out some very basic issues we are having.
1 of which you posted above.

RE: Hole callout doesn't work on mirrored part

I feel your pain! The hole callout feature also does not work for a hole located on a cylindrical surface, i.e. a setscrew hole over a keyway in a pulley. This has been a known issue for nearly 10 years. WTF??? It's as if the programmers for this software have never tested their own code to see if it works properly, or have never used any other CAD software to see how CAD software is supposed to work. Add the ridiculous price to all the shortcomings and I just don't get it. How could someone design such an inferior product and then charge out the wazoo for it? Apparently, I'm in the wrong business.

Thank you,
