    I made derived cut extrudes via assembly but now I just keep getting errors?

      hi guys, so ive been working on a pretty detailed assembly and I have plates and components that have holes in them to have fasteners to mount them to walls. So What I did as make the hole sketches and cutouts in the assembly so I know exactly where the hole cutouts should be. After I create these reference sketches within the "edit part" feature of the component I then go to assembly features at the top and do the extruded cut feature. Then I propagate the feature to the part so I can reference those cutouts for dimensions and tolerances later.


      Now my issue is that I am having problems because if i have to make changes to the part in other ways I keep getting error signs which are very annoying and dont seem to go away no matter what you do. the error sign goes by this exactly:


      "the intended cut does not intersect the model. Please check the sketch and Direction"


      but I have done everything I possibly can to fix it. there are no loose dangling sketches everything is defined and I made sure to orient the cut extrude direction so it does indeed cut though the part that is showing the error. its strange


      any advice on this?




      edit: now after the cuts are made and I want to insert bolts through the cut hole, solidworks will cut anything that goes through that hole. I wish I knew how to have more control over that feature or if there is a much more efficient and smarter way to create mounting hole cutouts within your assembly?
