Countersink Holes

Recommended Posts

Hello All -

I?m using some flat head machine screws to hold some boards together and I would like to create a countersink hole. It seems pretty straight forward, but I can't seem to figure out how to create a tapered extrude to cut the hole.

Screw is:

.477" Diameter Head Tapers at 85? for .133" to 1/4" Diameter, and then the rest of the screw ...

Another way to create a countersunk hole would be to use the chamfer edge tool from the 3D tool palette.

....yes but 3D chamfers are not part of the modelling history so if the hole needs to be altered you have to ungroup the chamfer to be able to move the hole and then re-apply it. A real pain when there are different hole sizes on one object
