cant make mount holes on pcb

I cant use fusion embedded with eagle theres to many bugs,so i have to use eagle standalone and fusion i first push the pcb to fusion then edit the board outline in fusion with some holes in a sketch when i try to extrude and cut through the pcb i get a error saying there is no objects to cut.How would i go about doing this?Thanks

 

Update:Now i dont get a green PCB Component Icon or do i get a edit profile,or create profile button it says its a 3d pcb and that the pcb was created in fusion?

This workflow is kind of awkward.

The 3D PCB workspace in my opinion needs a few improvements, particularly in this area.

My workflow has been to create the board outline and any mounting holes in F360, then create a 3D board from that and link it to the standalone Eagle, I then add any components and push/pull from Eagle. To make any changes to the board or add holes I go back into fusion, and edit the sketch, then click Finish Sketch after completing modifications.

Here is where the problem lies. In older versions you would click the Modify Profile button to update the profile. You would then have to do a Push pull in eagle for everything to be correct.

They removed the Modify profile button it seems, maybe to simplify the workflow, but instead made it even more confusing.

In my opinion clicking "Finish Sketch" should apply the changes, and make the correction to the board outline. If needed it should prompt you to do a Push/Pull with Eagle.

The current workflow seems to be, after clicking Finish Sketch, you need to right click on the board, select Edit board.Screen Shot 2020-06-08 at 9.51.20 AM.png

You then need to click on the voids, like on the center of the hole you want to punch through the board. Select profiles until the profile count is down to 1.

I then do a Push to 2D, Save that, and then the Final Pull/Push in Eagle to make everything right.

Hopefully this workflow is going to get some improvements soon. I actually came to the forum to remind myself of the workflow, and wound up documenting my workflow.
