Good morning all, My company use a lot of hex rivet nuts and at the moment we manually cutout each hex on the sheet metal using the polygon and extrude-cut feature...
Obviously this can take a long time if we have hundreds and I can already hear a few people screaming at this post with some simple solutions, however most of the time they cannot be patterned or mirrored as there is no link between them.
- My initial thoughts were to somehow create a custom hole wizard cutout but quickly realised there was no way to do this (confirmed by searching the forum)
- Second idea was to create a form feature tool that I could drag and drop onto my parts and remove the faces - however this has not worked due to error messages telling me that it cannot remove the faces I want (I have tried numerous changes and cant seem to get this to work)
Is there a 3rd solution to this as this will be an ongoing battle and I would love to be able to simplify the process,
thanks in advance everyone!
