Auto multiple mates to fastener rivets

Question asked by Raul Borobio on Jan 19, 2015



I have an assembly with some sheet metal parts fastened with rivets.


It's a top-down design, the length can change, so the amount of rivets also changes.


What's the fastest way for designin this kind of assemblies?


I used a cutout assembly operation with a linear pattern sketch driven by equations to calculate the # of rivet holes.


I supose the best way is to create a linear pattern for the original cutout assembly hole, and then use the feature driven pattern.


My final question is if is there a way to auto fill/mate all holes of x diameter?


Thank you
