I am lost. I place a hole tangent on cylinder, type in angle. I think I am supposted to use hole keypoints. I can't seem to figure it out. It keeps saying its unsucessful. HELP! I want to put a hole on the tangent cylinder then pattern 8 times.

BTW....I have to use ordered not sync.

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi,

You need to use the tangent plane

i looked at your model... Hole 4 is tangent? you can verify this by looking at teh cross section or a perpendicular view... the midpoint of the hold pierces the midpoint od the perpendeicular Major Diameter???

And a pattern solved once toggling from Fast option to Smart option.

the 2 large red arrows are the "clocking" or "timing" of your tangent plane. at what degree do you want to be tangent... so once you select the clyinder you will be automatically zeroed at the closest quadrant, from here you can establish lets say a 15 deg rotation of your tangent plane from the cardnal point.... the yellow triangle with red explanation mark is odd... this is a sensor out of range notification... i dont see any sensors in the file, thats odd... otherwise all is good.

let us know if you get this owrking per my suggestion to use smart pattern instead of fast pattern.

Angle allows you to enter a precise angle of exact value

Step is like an increment value, if you leave angle value empty and enter 15 deg in step, then as you move your mouse about the tangent face it will increment (step) in 15 deg increments.
