I'm new to Solid Edge and wonder if it's possible to make custom holes/cuts? Based on a saved part.
We're using a lot of transducers in our designs, all of them have to be attached using special designed holes, based on specifications provided by the manufactures.
We are looking for a way to insert these holes into our parts easily, so we don't have to create them from the ground up.
Is it possible to create a part of a hole and save it, to be used later as a "custom hole/cut"?
Hope, that this description helps.
Thanks for your reply, but it's not exactly what I'm looking for I think.
Your solution copy multiple features within a part and save it into a new part, correct? At least that's what I experienced after trying.
What i'm looking for is a feature/tool/function to make a hole/cut, based on the structure of another part. It's hard to explain I guess
Look at the picture in my first post. I have a part identically to the inside of that hole (the part marked with red). How can I use the hole-part to make a hole/cut in another part?
First about my first reply.
When the features are stored in a folder as a new part, you can use them on any other part. Just drag&drop them on a new part and position them. Later, you can change any parameter you want.
But, if you have a body created for this part, then you can do the following:
This last options works since ST6 or ST5, I don't remember exactly. But it can help you, too.
