Hi,

I would use a pattern here.

Think this is the easiest method to bring equal distance bewteen those 4 holes, isn't it?

I draw 3 lines between the points and make the lines "equal". (= sign)

This is in ordered.

In either mode, if you don't want to use a pattern, you can use @ChrisMorgan's 2nd solution of dimensions with formulas. I would just make two of the dimensions equal to one of them or make each dimension equal to 1/3 the overall.

I use joris' method alot or else I make a pattern in a sketch first and then pin the hole to that sketch. Then pattern the hole from the sketch.
