say i have a plate with 100s or 1000s of holes i need to extrude cut , it would take too long to pick each one, so how do i do a mass hole extrude in 1 go ?
Well you can do one hole and extrude cut and then pattern it. If that is an option. If that is not an option, then if you left window over all the holes then you can do it as well. Are they all in the same sketch?
Assuming they're in a grid, or some kind of pattern, do one extruded cut and then a Linear Pattern (or other pattern type, depending on your situation), or a series of Linear Patterns.
Like it has been suggested, I would do a pattern. With that said, the order in which features appear in the feature manager is important as well. For example, you are having this issue with multiple holes, what if the cut came before the holes. Then the cut feature would not have to contend with the holes.
Understand that we are all kind of flying blind basing our answers on your worded question. If you post some images, or better yet, your actual part, we might be able to lead you in a better and different direction.
i was doing some quick experiments on a rectangle sketch then banged in assorted round square and hexagonal holes to see how i would do it.
the holes are all over the place with no set pattern to any of them and then defined the lot .
it was justa brainstorming experiment to see how it would be done
You simply an do a new sketch, then highlight all the previous hole sketches and click "convert" . Now you can cut your holes in one shot. Could be a good idea?
