I want to project a point, circle from one assemby to another (enclosure). It's to create a cutout on the enclosure. I'm trying to optimize the location of the hole by projecting it.
Attached is a quick video of one way of projecting features in an assembly from one part to another.
This was done using editing a part in an assembly.
You could also start a new sketch on the part which requires the hole and then use convert entities to project hole, then extrude cut, note if you use this method make sure you check the Propagate to Part' box, otherwise this new hole will not show up in the part file.

Welcome to SW forums James
If the enclosure is in the same assembly, then edit that enclosure and start a new sketch on the face you want to create the cut out on. Now using Convert Entities tool on the sketch toolbar, simply project the circle, point, etc. on that face and add the cut out as required.

I apologize for not answering earlier but I got caught up in other issues at work. Thanks for the warm welcome to SW forums.
I was able to project a circle but I was not able to create a point from the SW part. I wanted to find the center and project it. Is there a way to do this?
Thanks for the help,
