Betreff: using a hole pattern to pattern a part in an assembly

@Johnson_BigMatt 

oh wow - i knew it didnt work with mirrors, but i didnt realise that the part it self is mirrored so i was looking at the opposite end.

is there a way to open a part in the assembly view so next time i can check which orientation it is in. 

or maybe i could edit in context?

@MagRiz   DBL Clicking a part in assy with launch it IPA.  you can then use Ctrl+Q to show or hide the assy level...

Hi @Johnson_BigMatt

 

 

 

Yes indeed, this is the issue with a mirror feature rather than a original one.

 

So @MagRiz bbeside that what was suuggested by BigMatt, is, that YOu also can try to creat this part as sync part.

A sync hole feature always is one single hole pattern even when it is mirrored (take care for the option which are here) or do the mirror and "pattern" within the hole feature itself.

You can place the three original holes using a trinagled polygon (is construction automatically) and mirror them about the base plane.

This also will keep a single hole feature with six holes which again can be used for asm pattern.

 

But to be honest, such parts are done sync a hundred times better, easier and faster.

And they will have those great sync hole feature in it!
