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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
@MagRiz certainly something odd going odd there. Have you tried to Recompute the Part?
RMB on a feature in the PF and select Recompute.
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.
