I am drawing a screen and need to place a large amount of spaced holes. Which is the quickest way of doing this, as i am new to cad drawing
I'm assuming you are doing this in Solid Edge Draft since this is the 2D forum.
Draw the elements you want to pattern at the start point of where you want the pattern Then on the Sketching tab in the Draw area, you can find the Rectangular and Circular Pattern commands. Follow the prompts.
I would also suggest trying command finder at the bottomof your screen to help you find commands like this.
Hi there @Stewartc67,
Here is a short video of a rectangular pattern....hopefully the steps are clear.
You may notice, at the end, I right click on the pattern and select "ungroup", this is because by default, Solid Edge will automatically "group" the resulting pattern. [only necessary, if wanting to crop instances off, like I showed]
