"[WARNING] The feature as specified did not change the number of faces..."

Inventor 9 Gives this warning after creating a patterned hole feature in the flange of a sheet metal part. I tried editing the depth of this hole feature but didn't help.
Removing and re-doing holes didn't help either.

What to do?

Here's the complete warning text about two different hole features with same problem.

[WARNING] Edit Hole Feature: problems encountered while executing this command. [r:\core\Fw\Main\FWxApp.cpp, line 3593]
[WARNING] IV-0003.ipt: Warnings occurred during update [r:\core\Rd\Main\Component.cpp, line 522]
[WARNING] Hole5: Problems occurred while building this Hole [r:\core\Rd\Main\Feature.cpp, line 229]
[WARNING] The feature as specified did not change the number of faces (and may not have affected the part). Accept the feature that resulted, or use Edit Sketch or Edit Feature to change the feature definition. [r:\core\rd\rddiagnoses.h, line 957]
[WARNING] Hole7: Problems occurred while building this Hole [r:\core\Rd\Main\Feature.cpp, line 229]
[WARNING] The feature as specified did not change the number of faces (and may not have affected the part). Accept the feature that resulted, or use Edit Sketch or Edit Feature to change the feature definition. [r:\core\rd\rddiagnoses.h, line 957]

Can you zip and post the file or recreate the same problem in a new file?

This message shows up generally when your added feature didn't change the part.

I can only guess what your part looks like, but for holes here are the two things to check...

Check if your hole center is on the part.
Check if the hole cut direction in cutting into the part.

If this doesn't help, maybe post a picture of you problem and what version of IV you are using.

Like Vogt said, if the feature didn't change anything then this error message comes up. Example: You have a hole in a block. Now you create another hole of same size at the same hole center point on the block then you get the error message. This also happens in other situations too. Every new feature should result in a change in the model. If it dosen't change then we put this message.

1. Open the part
2. Move EOP above Hole5
3. Is Hole5's resulting shape already there? Meaning has the hole been already cut through another feature.
4. The same thing might be happening for Hole7
If the hole5's resulting shape is not already there and you think the software is complaining then we need to log an issue.

Thanks

You need to use the "adjust" option in the compute dialog in the feature pattern window.

"Identical" tries to match the shape of the feature.

"Adjust" tries to match the intent of the feature.

I ran into this error and fixed it by changing my extrusion to be a new solid.

Is that really really the solution? Depends!
