Bolted Connection on a Machined Face

Hi All.


I have been working on a large assembly and I am trying to get a bolted connection to pass through a component and a machined plate.  I have been using the cocentric option to complete many other holes up to this point, but not through a machined surface.


When I attempt this, I get two errors saying:

Design Accelerator Doctor

1. Failed to add sketch for a hole

2. Failed to create a hole


My questions are:

Is there a way around this Or is this a problem that I am going to have to work around?


Is there a better way to get a hole/bolt through this assembly?

I don't think it will be possible to answer this question without a dataset.

Make up a simple example assembly and attach it here.
