Hi to everyone!
I'm trying to assembly a bended sheetmetal with a cilinder. It's been impossible to me because Solid Edge does not detect the cuts as holes so I can'm made the assembly. I add some similar parts, even the real ones are more complext the issue is the same.
I want to alineate the axis of the cilinder with the hole. ¿Any idea?
What version of SE are you using? I can't open your files.
But, just as a guess, maybe it's possible to add sketches in the part with lines coaxial with the holes. Then you use the sketches for mating.
if you project a circle to a cylindric face the resulting curve is no circle anymore and the cutout from this (spline) curve is a spline surface.
As @bshand writes, you could use a sketch line to define the relation.
But I assume that you like a cylindric hole that is radial to the sheet face.
One possibility is to create a tangent reference plane on the face and create a hole feature on this plane.
So the angle of the plane controls the hole on the x-z plane and the skech of the hole can control the y offset.
Based on what you have done so far in the attached part files, here's a video of how you can proceed; since you were so close:
But as Bruce and @JB have suggested, if you are looking for a hole radially placed then a tangent plane will be required. Here's the video for it:

I'm using the ST10.
Thank you for the response but I can't fix it to the sketch because it does not follow the curve of the sheetmetal.
¿any other idea?
Thank you and best regards.
That hole you highlighted in your message is not a circular - the circle was wrapped around the cylinder.
The cylindrical part will not fit in there.
Can you show a view from which the cutout even appears circular ?
Hence the sketches won't help.
