Hello,

I am trying pattern the curved surface (joint) but I could'nt. I tried with curve driven pattern and sketch driven pattern but holes are not normal to the circumference. can anybody help me.

Thanks for your early response I posted my file in the original (beginning of discussion). I drew a circle on the plane and projected on the face and converted that as a an 3D entity. after that I used extruded cut to drill the hole.

First off... I'm not sure your surface is good because you used a flex feature rather than something else... But, basically you have a quarter of a torus there. I don't know if there's any pattern that is going to be satisfactory. However, you may have better luck with your holes shape by using the hole wizard and a 3D sketch.

Thanks i have done something like that with hole wizard.

Now, the new challange for me is that i have to make a relation of the flattened one to original one. That means I made some holes on the component and flattened the surfaces. After that I pointed some 3D sketch points on the flattened surface and to the original component too (on the circumference of the hole). Now, i have to export the XYZ coordinate data as excel (.csv)file, I exported them separately. But, I have to make a relation of the point data on the flattened one from the original hole point (XYZ coordinate point on the flatten one and XYZ coordinate point on the original component hole) should be in the row in excel "In order to plot them in MATLAB".

Can you please suggest me (if possible) how to arrange those two points data in a row (the point on the flattened hole and the point on the original hole which is reference for the flattened point).
