  • Pattern question

    I have a plate w/ a pattern of thru holes (.169"), which also have counter-bores (.300"). Is there a way to copy the pattern of thru holes, which I have already programmed, offset them in Z to the top of the counter bores, adjust for the new diameter and paste w/pattern?

    You should be able to offset the Z but I don't think you can do the diameter size.

      that's what I was thinking. Trying to save some time.

        Trying to do too many things for pattern paste. Why not copy it then do a search / replace for the things you need? Feat name, Dia, Z depth.

          How do you do that? Never heard of such

            Search / replace is in the edit menu tree. Just like all other windose prgs.

              Or, just copy one, paste with pattern in Z. Then change the diameter, copy and paste with pattern for the X,Y locations.
              When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.
