Hi! Punchtool (iFeature) is limited to some sketch-based features not all. Sweep based on 3D sketch path and Loft are among the ones being excluded unfortunately.

For a regular part, you could use a workflow to bypass the restriction. Basically, you make a source feature part. Then derive it as a separate body in the part you want to place the feature. Then use Move Bodies (Direct Edit) command to relocate the feature body to the desirable place. Next, use Combine feature to join or cut it.

Thanks!
