I have the following problem: I designed a fairly simple sheet metal part starting from a rectangular base flange.
The part has 3 bends on two opposing sides of the base (bend1-30mm; bend 2-40mm; bend 3 - 8mm)
thickness is irrelevant
On the 40 mm flange I need to punch a series of holes in different shapes/increments
I've drawn the 2d geometry of the holes on the face plane and punched them through with the extrude command but it is verry difficult to parametrize them (their size/ increments)
and verry TIME CONSUMING. Tried the PARAMETRIZE command on the sheet metal toolbar but that applies constraints only to the main body of the model, not the holes.
So if I need to manufacture my part at a length of 3500mm for example with circular holes on the side flanges at an increment of say 150 mm that's a lot of manual constraining/drawing-extruding holes...
Does BricsCAD offer any options to speed up my workflow in this particular case? So I can skip manually adding constraints for every hole in the part.
Can I make some sort of sketch or 3d array to modify the number of holes dynamically as I increase/decrease the length of the part?
