Mapping Error


New member
I have a part that gives me a mapping error when I try changing a hole size.

What workarounds can be done to prevent losing the drawings?

Sometimes I can close the session and it will work upon reloading.

I did a copy/paste of the part body so now my file contains a duplicate.
All of my dimensions are associated with the first copy except for
the hole size changes. This isn't optimal, however, it produced what I need.

Any other ideas that I can try out?

"mapping error" ? What is this? Could you provide more details and specifics on what the problem is.

I am getting dual mapping errors when I change a hole size. The model refuses to generate the flat pattern. Makes me rinse and repeat work.
