In my current project, I have, put simple, an extruded rectangle as the body of a heat exchanger.
Along the margins of one of its faces, I've created a threaded hole and multiplied them by using linear sketch pattern.
Then, over this face of this solid, I have an acrilic cover (solid body), and I need to create counterbore holes for the screws that will be holding them together.
Now, the cover is obviously in a different plane/sketch, and I would like to set each counterbore hole associated with the holes in the heat exchanger (as, for example, coincident), in such a way that if I change the location of the threaded holes, the counterbores aumatically update as well.
As I am placing the counterbores, I could only select/snap to the first original threaded hole, because there is an axis linked to it. As for the other liner patterned holes, I can't select them, neither place them anywhere else and add a relation between them later, because there is no axis nor any other element that can be linked.
Given the number of times I will have to do it, the fact that linear pattern seems quite handy and the simplicity of the logic, could you help me with an easy solution for that?
