Power copy problem - deleting feature

Power copy problem - deleting feature

Power copy problem - deleting feature

Try to make a powercopy holes template, instantiate by document or by catalog as in the video. Try to delete the first set of holes. Catia try to delete event the second one, why? I cant find any link between them. This is so strange!


RE: Power copy problem - deleting feature

I have the feeling the second set of holes are based on the top face which is a resulting face from first set of hole

I kind of found the problem, but not the solution...

When you select the edges catia create those extractions, and reuse them for every powercopy. Isolating those feature will lead an undercostrain sketch. So found the problem but not the solution.

RE: Power copy problem - deleting feature

extract all edges you want to use first, then select the extracts when instantiating...

Not working eather... this is driving me nuts!!

RE: Power copy problem - deleting feature

Ok solved...that was a classic Catia "absurdity" , you have plenty of ways of doing the same thing, but just one works... The trick is, not using classic contraint but automatic constraint, in fact if you look at the output generated by the powercopy now it has more sense. Hope this would help someone.
