I have a solid model of a steel bar 1" wide by 75" long, 1/8" thick.
I want to put a series of 1/4" holes along the length of the bar spaced 1" apart down the middle.
So far the only way I've found to do that is to do them one at a time.
For each hole I have to reselect the face and place the hole. That got tedious after about the 40th hole. I tried to copy the hole so I could paste it but when I select a hole it selects the whole bar.
Is there a way to do a linear array for holes?
I'm using VCad 8.
Thanks.
Ray

Hi Ray

Try doing a linear array of circles and then use the cutout tool after selecting all the circles.

Not really solutions, you can mark the video (on YouTube) like your favorite. Same with screencast, I can download on my computer your demos.
