CATIA V5: Creating a pocket 26 times on the same pad


New member

I am trying to create a pocket 26 times on the same pad in different locations. I know this can be done using powercopy or simply copy&paste; however I would like to know if there is a better/faster way of doing this?

If all the pockets are the same size and depth and on the same face, a pattern command should be used to duplicate them. Depending on the pattern, you should use a Rectangular Pattern, Circular Pattern, or User-Defined Pattern.
