I'm trying to use standard hardware models to create features in other components. This was a simple exercise in Unigraphics, but Solidworks has me stumped, so obviously I'm doing something stupid.
The simplest one I'm trying to use is a cam for locking joinery components together (see attached). Pretty simple model, a 20mm boss with a flat at 9.5mm, with a 5mm pin sticking out from the flat area.
Once I bring it in from the library and position it I want the cam model to produce a 20mm dia by 13dp hole in one component, with a 5mm x 12dp hole in it's mating part.
I don't need to produce tables or have the part infinitely variable, these are simple everyday items of fixed size. We recently brought SWood as an add-on and it has several library features doing this, so it must be possible.
I feel a bit stupid asking. In UG it was a simple right click on a component or feature of a library part to have it create links. Any help I can get in educating my dumb ass will be greatly appreciated.
