Can I do it more easily with mate reference? It takes a lot of time and there are too many holes.
I use it copy with mates, but it takes time.
Thank you for your help.
Fully constrain your first one, then use sketch pattern.
Definitely - using mate references helps, but with the hex shape you would need to get creative and add an axis and or use the hex round sketch, do it in both parts, however I'm thinking by the time it takes to set those references up, you could almost be done with the mates. I would insert all the rivets that can't be patterned and make all the ones on the same plane coincident to the top and mate one in position with the plate (up-down), then all the rest will follow, now all you need to do is one by one select the round part of the rivet and the hex sketch round and mate each one concentric, then lock the rotation.
If any of the holes were created with features such as Linear Pattern, or Hole Wizard, then the "Pattern Driven Component Pattern" can be a big time saver. See 2017 SOLIDWORKS Help - Pattern Driven Pattern if you're not familiar with it.
Craig a good answer, thanks
I put dots in the middle of hexagons and manually adjusted their configurations, so it succeeded with the sketch driven pattern.
I'm using SW 2014, was not successful Pattern Driven Component.

It was there in SW2014, but I think it had a different name (maybe "Feature Driven Component Pattern"?). Click on the drop-down under Linear Pattern.
This command exists in SW 2014 but does not work in multiplication with cut extrude in different axes, as in the picture
Maybe in SW 2017 have changed.
