Patterning error?

Hi,

 

I have a fairly simple design for a watch case I'm making. I'm trying to pattern a cylender around the body of the watch in a circular patter, but I get this error: "Failed to make tool sheet from feature faceset"

 

What does this mean and how do I resolve it?

 

Attached is a screen shot (too big to post, apparently).

Can you post the f3d file? I tried to replicate the error and could not.

There was a seam on the bottom face:

I used press pull and snapped to the bottom face ( .03 mm distace) to make the faces merge:

After that the pattern works fine.

Here is the final model too as an attachment.
