using a hole pattern to pattern a part in an assembly

i have a part with a hole feature. that hole feature is then circular patterned. which gives me 3 holes in total.

 

i am now trying to use those holes to pattern a bolt in them holes. but it wont select the holes?

 

can i not select a pattern? does it only work with hole features?

should work just fine,  can you share your part file.

MagRiz I use this feature sometimes.  It should work.  I tend to skip a step once in a while.  Select the part to pattern in the assembly, then the part that contains the pattern...  Then pick the pattern within this part.  It won't let you pick the original hole.

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

this must work as expected.

 

Try to select another hole instance when selecting the pattern.

Maybe You have got the original base hole feature.

@MagRiz   certainly something odd going odd there.   Have you tried to Recompute the Part?

 

RMB on a feature in the PF and select Recompute.

@Johnson_BigMatt - i cant seem to find a recompute option

 

@hawcad - i have uploaded the part file you can add it to your own assembly and pattern a bolt. you don't need the other mating part

looks like you are trying to pattern to the mirror, not the pattern.   the "left" (-X) side works as expected.

As @Johnson_BigMatt states, the pattern is on the left and the right is a mirror. Place the part and pattern on the left, and then use "clone" to copy all of the features in the right-hand mirrored side. I tested this method and it works fine.
