    How can I create a 2.5 axis feature with islands?

      Hi

       

      I'm having trouble creating a machinable tapered pocket-type feature with islands. I have tried automatic feature extraction and manual creation of 2.5 axis features without success.

       

       

       

      Can anyone please give me advice on how to achieve this?

       

      I have attached the part file if you wanted to take a closer look.

       

      Thanks in advance!

          Hi Joe,

          I'm not really sure what you're looking for.Do you want pockets with draft on the sides ? Like this?

          Or are you looking for bosses like this?

          Or am I completely missing the point?
