Used to be able to select a sketch with a bunch of points in it, then select Hole Wizard and it would put holes on all those points automatically
Now in 2014, it doesn't seem to work
Anyone know a way to do this?
I believe you are remembering incorrectly. The HW has never been able to use an existing sketch to directly propagate holes. That function is a long standing enhancement request.
However, you can propagate an existing HW hole using a Sketch Pattern.
A colleague said he swears this used to work. He'd create a sketch with something like 8 holes and make a cut. But then he'd remember it needed to be a hole wizard feature instead. So he'd delete the cut, and use the remaining sketch for the hole wizard. And it would make all the holes, without selecting each point individually.
Has anyone else seen that work?
I have wanted that to work before when I edit someones file who didn't use hole wizard. I have never seen that functionality though, I always had to just draw a point in the new HW sketch on top of each of the old sketch points.
An alternate method would be to make a hole in one place and then create a sketch driven pattern, but that doesn't seem good to me.
The Hole Wizard uses only sketch points to locate holes.
A cut-extrude using a regular sketch with multiple circles would not have any sketch points.
Do a Sketch Driven Pattern using only one hole.
