Why don't holes do peer locate in assembly?

Phenom
Phenom

Maybe I'm missing something here;

 

Often in an assembly I'll be creating a new part. Sketching works fine, sketch points will snap as expected, but holes wont. So I've been creating a dummy circle or other feature where I want the hole, creating the hole nearby and then dragging in sync (or using relationships). Is there a more direct way to place a hole, apart from going the assembly feature route? And if not, wouldn't it be logical for the hole command to respect peers, as do other commands?

Hi there @hjoy,

 

Odd.....I have no problem placing holes using peer locations here.

 

Could it be that old PITA "perspective view" tripping up the ability to locate the peers in that particular process?

@SeanCresswell, that's odd! Please check the video; perspective is off and the sketch works fine, hole doesn't.

Just to add: peers are on (not visible in the movie).

Hi @hjoy

 

 

 

I can confrim this behaviour with - and this I have seen in Your video - with SE2019

 

 

maybe this is a version issue since I also remember that holes could be placed in the same way as normal sketch elements.

 

PS.: I personally prefer the use of creating an extrusion (negativ) followed by a Recognize Holes functionin sync.

 

Or - if available You directly can substract the screw bolts from Your plate with letting SE recognizes the thread types and sizes.

@hawcad, this has been the case as long as I've been around (ST9-).  BTW, how do you and  @SeanCresswell get anything done when you're always busy answering my questions and others? Smiley Wink

Help much aprreciated!

Hi @hjoy

 

 

 

and here is a short video showing this method.

 

PS.: You also can run a Recognize Hole Pattern afterwards if there are more holes and/or You want to change the number of them

 

(view in My Videos)

Hi @hjoy

 

 

 

and maybe we are in this good situation to be just at the other side of the world.

 

@SeanCresswell is in New Zealand while I'm in good old Europe.

And that means one of us always is active due to the 12 hours time difference

So to say this is a global service!
