In your sketch did you use "Include Geometry"?


Have you had much Inventor training or experience?  This is a great place to go for a start on that:

Well the add-on worked and updated the parts to the assembly. 91 holes were transfered to various parts and it took about a half hour (my lunch).


I am a 20plus year Autocad user and a 1 month Inventor user. I completed a 4 day Inventor Essentials class, but bare essentials would have been more descriptive.


I thank you, Chris and Jeff for helping out this Newbie, and I will for future projects ultilize Inventor procedures.


Dan A. Thanks so much for the life saving advice. you saved me hours of redo.

Any time! Glad I could be of assistance.  I know that feature can be pretty useful (more so if it could handle other feature migrations like chamfers, fillets, etc...)
