there's translate. now what?

 

Hole Blaster? I have to have ANOTHER software to program/inspect multiple holes in a rapid manner? Why doesnt NX CMM have a similar option to NX MANUFACTURING which has the ability to copy/paste patterns?

 

What is the point of the PATTERN function in NX CMM?

Define a hole feature. Create a path and a tolerance for the hole feature. Now Put the feature, path, and tolerance in a folder. Now select the feature, path, and tolerance and right click on then and choose transform. This is the dialog that you should see.

As far as the Hole Blaster program goes, its just a helpful file to run just like any journal file in NX.

It should be under object /transfom. You have to be on NX9 something though. What version are you on?
