Is it possible to use transformation(circular) feature on this pad?

Use a Circular Pattern to copy the mounting pad and hole around the center axis

Kingston; you need to take a class with an instructor looking over you're shoulder

To rotate the pad and hole:

1. first select the pad (in the tree), hold down Ctrl button, and select the hole (in the tree)
2. with both elements highlighted, click on the Circular Pattern icon
3. use the Instance & Angular Spacing option
4. Instances: 2
5. Angular spacing: 120 (I don't see this on the drawing)
6. Reference: centerline
7. use the Reverse button if required
8. OK when done
