Version 03/01 Now, more powerful than ever with the addition of custom formats and hole charts. MechLeader draws the leader and text for 2D hole callouts. Typing standard hole notes is almost completely eliminated and accuracy is greatly improved (no more looking at screw calculators to figure out what was drawn). Select one or two circles, (representing tapped, counter bored, counter sunk or bolt clearance holes) the program then determines what the hole(s) are and creates the text. For example: 1/4-20UNC-2B, M6, f17/64, f.26, etc. With custom formats, the displayed text can be set up to match your annotation style. The text can be converted to inches or millimeters. The registered version allows customization of 36 different parameters including selection of decimal or fractional values. The text can also be edited before it is written to the drawing. The program uses fuzzy logic to determine the hole size, type and scale. But it does not stop there; it keeps looking for other matches.
When multiple holes are selected a hole chart indicating X and Y coordinates and the hole type is created. Although the program is extremely easy to use, the manual covers every functional point of the program and is about 17 pages long. The fully operational registered version is easy to order via phone, fax or Internet, when using a credit card. Most users have the program within 24 hours of ordering (when sent by E-mail). See the documentation for other ordering options. Have a nice day!
