I'm learning 3D modelling with Solidworks and my task is to create parts and assemble a classic desk lamp. Everything is going great until the final part, where I'm creating the actual lamp-shade looking like this:
I would of course like to use the same reference sketch for all six ventilation holes, which I assumed could be done using the circular sketch pattern. I'm however not able to accomplish this, since the circular sketch pattern only seems to work as long as I'm choosing a rotation point in the same plane. In my case I would like to rotate around the axis creating some kind of a "3D sketch"? I would appreciate if someone could give some help.
