Holes in welded assembly into multiple parts

Hi

 

 I am looking for the easist way, how to create holes pattern on welded part. I was trying promote body (as seen in the video) and wave link ( we dont have licence for whole wave). But the problem seems to be the limitation of creating holes. As I remember, this is a frequently mentioned problem. So is there some easy way, how to create this pattern, or is it necessary to make hole on each profile separately and then make pattern? Smiley Frustrated

Hi,

Please find the movie below. The reason is that the bodies are not connected and for the hole operation to be patterned (which actually needs to be subtracted from the bodies) we need one body as  a whole. Here is one of the workaround i used...Not sure if this makes any sense.

Thanks

 

 Yes,it makes sense. I actually tried to get the bodies somehow together, but this solution did not occur to me Smiley Happy . But anyhow - it doesn't look as a regular solution for CAD as NX...does it?? Smiley Frustrated   Are there any more possibilities,or the connecting bodies is the only way,how to evade this hole limitation ??

Hi,

I admit connecting bodies using a dummy body might not be feasible always but you can still give it a try...

one more option you can use is ..to create the hole with Boolean as None and then use PATTERN GEOMETRY to get the array...you can later boolean (subtract)  the holes from the disconnected bodies.

or use Assembly cut.. I will leave it to the experts regarding the use of assembly cuts for such operations

Thx

I was just thinking about it and tried.. I did it as: 

promote body - make one hole - pattern geometry - assembly cut... and it worked. You just need to select all bodies(profiles) and the pattern as a tool.holes.png

Ohh.I have just noticed that this solution has already been mentioned by @kapilsharma Smiley Happy

Thank You

But any other options are welcome.
