Analyzing Waterline End Conditions

You can apply optional end conditions to the waterline circuit
segment endpoints.
• The following end conditions can
be applied:
– None
– Blind
– Thru
– Thru w/Cbore

You can apply optional end conditions to the waterline circuit segment
endpoints. You can apply end conditions to ensure the circuit is capable of
being manufactured. You can apply the following end conditions:
• None — Causes a standard, blind end to be created on the end. By default,
each waterline circuit end has this option specified.
• Blind — Enables you to specify an extra drilled blind end. You can extend
the drilled end a specified distance beyond the endpoint.
• Thru — Enables you to create a straight hole end condition. The system
extends the drilled end out through all mold model geometry.
• Thru w/Cbore — Enables you to create a counterbore hole end condition.
Similar to the Thru option, the system extends the drilled end out through all
mold model geometry. However, the system also places a counterbore at
the entrance to the mold geometry. You can specify both the counterbore
diameter and depth.
In order to define a waterline circuit end condition, you must specify the ends
to which you want to apply end conditions. Rather than selecting a segment
endpoint vertex, you should select the segment itself near the end to which
you want to apply the end condition. If the endpoint you want to apply the
condition to is the intersection of two segments, the system determines which
segment endpoint to apply the end condition to based on the segment you
select. You can press CTRL and select multiple waterline circuit endpoints
in order to have the same end condition applied.
