First post in this stack but curious on if there is a 'right' answer (within Australian or ISO standard) for how to quantify numerous holes of same size/properties on a drawing. In the past I've seen (assuming 4-holes of 8mm diameter)
- Ø8 4 Places
- Ø8 4-OFF
- Ø8 x4
- Ø8 (4)
- 4 x Ø8
However, looking AS 1100.201 (Mechanical Engineering) I'm unable to find industry specific confirmation. (at a glance)
What I really want to know, is what do most of you consider 'best practice'. Or what is commonly used in the industry seeing as the standards have not been updated since 1992. If from country other than Australia, please note where you're 'best practice' is considered.
