Re: Remove Trim Operation on Group of Parts from Propagation

just my opinion but if you want a trim that is the same on all parts why didn't you just trim the template part that is the purpose of the repatition and template function :idea: :?:

Re: driver coating and finishing

I assume you don't want to use the catalog function to do this? or if you don't know about this I would suggest using the catalog to do this.
example below: Name the part to change then "."(property to alter)
Tube.refrencence
Tube.coating
Tube.matter

Re: Process unknown (FormUser3.frm)

Are the holes thru? are the parts duplicated or repeated? Can you share the file it would be much faster for me to trouble shoot?
attached are the design model and the cam process default associations to the hole model picked in design are both parts using the same Hole model?
