I have been trying to utilize tolerancing with Inventor version 6, but I am finding it is somewhat lacking. I can tolerance my sketch dimensions in the XY, but when I go to extrude I am not allowed to tolerance the extrude dimension. Also, If I use the hole tool to create a through hole, I can't apply tolerances to the holes. Can you tolerance extrusion depth and holes via the hole tool? Or is it best to just create your holes via the sketch tools, and forget about extrusion (z) tolerances.
