    Doing it in 6 partitions is another method.

    But did you try my steps 2 and 3 above? I included them so you could learn something new, plus make the hexagon of holes as a single pattern.

    Maybe the STEP file is corrupt or empty? Can you open the file with any other program and see the data?

    When you open the file in CATIA, is there any geometry in the tree?

    There's not a lot of information to go by. Which fillet tool, and which options did you use?
