Create new workplane.
Select one of the origin planes or axis.
Select side of cylinder.
Now you have a plane on which to Sketch a Hole Center Point.
Sorry if I seem a bit inept, but I can't seem to do this at all. I have a 1.5" dia Cylinder and need 4 holes in the side. The directions you gave aren't making much sense to me. I have tried to do the things you suggested but so far nothing. I am using Inventor 2013.
See image below
Hi, I New to do 3 holes in a cilinder, the angle between the axis hole is 60 degrees,, I made I hole in a plane, but I dont know how to do the other 2 holes, how can I made it? I m attaching a autocad draw of what i need to do .
Create the first hole and then do a Circular Pattern.
Attach your ipt file here if you can't figure it out.
I am attaching the File, I will try to use the circular pattern, im new in autodesk inventor so i will try how to use that option.
Click Circular Pattern tool.
Click on the Hole.
In the Circular Pattern dialog box select the Selection tool for Axis and select the side of the cylinder.
Enter 3 instances and click OK.
BTW, your sketches are not constrained and you are doing too much work.
I recommend you go through these
