To Select Holes by Feature Parameters
The By Parameter tab in the Drill Group dialog box enables you to include holes that have certain parameter values.
You can create and modify feature parameters in Part or Assembly mode.
When you go to the By Parameter tab, the Feature Parameter list box contains a list of all feature parameters associated with Hole and Cosmetic Thread features in the model. When you select a parameter name in the list, the Value text box below will contain a drop-down list of all the currently present values for this parameter.

2. Select an operator from the drop-down list. For parameter types Integer and Real, the operators available are: "=", "!=", ">", "<". For other parameter types, the only operators available are: "=" and "!=".
3. Select a value from the drop-down list, or type a value.
4. Click Add.
The system displays the selected parameter and its value in the list box below and includes all holes with the appropriate feature parameter values in the Hole Group.
