Why sketch pattern holes don`t cut all bodies, I tried all options of pattern (geometry pattern with all bodies and without geometry pattern)
Did an instance get skipped by mistake?
There is no such option in sketch pattern
My apologies, I was thinking of component linear pattern and I didn't interpret your post correctly on the first reply.
SOLIDWORKS does seem to be aware of this and they a few SPRs open addressing the concerns in your post. As a workaround, I was able to make a Geometry Pattern Mirror of the Sketch Pattern feature using the bottom face of the initial body as the mirror plane to get the same results.
I`m a big magnet for SWX bugs((
Yea bummer, That's why I use feature linear pattern, easier to edit than edit sketch. Plus less rebuild time,
How to use linear pattern in case of nonregular arrangement?
You could also use the Hole Wizard feature to add basic holes and dimension location points in the same fashion as a Sketch Pattern. The resultant holes will cut through multiple bodies.
Yes, I use hole wizard a lot, this case was an attempt to work in plane of underlying sketch Bug!Ref.geometry>Point.Impossible to project sketch point on DEFAULT plane. to simplify process of point positioning. Mostly I can`t put sketch normally to screen because of other frame members.
So skip would not work for you?
Or as Benjamin suggested hole wizard.
It is actually designed this way. If you Go to Help , you can see that description of
Geometry pattern says :
" Creates the pattern using only the geometry (faces and edges) of the features, rather than patterning and solving each instance of the features. The Geometry Pattern option speeds up the creation and rebuilding of the pattern. You cannot create geometry patterns of features that have faces merged with the rest of the part."
So when you create cut-extrude same as "Master Hole", resultant geometry is cylindrical surface create on body.
When you pattern that geometry (by checking geometry pattern), it didn't intersect with lower body and cut is not created.
This similar to , when you create surface offset (0 mm offset) of hole surface > Pattern it > Cut with surface.
You will get same result with Linear pattern if "Geometry pattern" option is checked.
To get better results, you can create master hole at position where it creates max. geometry needed. Later you skip where cut is not needed.
Thank you, I know this workaround, what about hole series feature which dosn`t affect all bodies
bottom angle was not cut
So, it's not a Bug!
I think it`is a specific program logic
You should open a new discussion for Hole series, so that it will be easy for user to search.
Also it will be great if share parts.
I opened Hole series discussion several days ago and asked you about strange behaviour of hole series, you didn`t answer and I desided to repeat my question here, sorry. Assembly is already thereBug!Hole series makes bolt assembly not only to be transparent but...
I have answered your queries in the post Bug!Hole series makes bolt assembly not only to be transparent but...
It is always better to stick to your post, mixing post will create confusion for readers.
Also I suggest you to first contact you VAR for your issues, because they are responsible for solving your queries. This platform is to share knowledge and helping each other not getting technical support from SOLIDWORKS.
Thank you I`ll do this way
