Hole generation Failure


New member
Hi all,

Iam trying to Model a Connecting Rod. I need to create a hole through an axis that passes for a certain depth. No matter wat i try i end up with the Failure Diagnostics Dialog Box. I have attached a Screen Shot which i guess would make things clear.

Hi Whit2498

Thanks for the reply. I tried moving the Datum to the other side and cutting the other way. Did not help either.

Can u people help me out

This looks like a symmetric part, so what i suggest you is to offset the vertical datum and create avertical axisthen create a coaxial holes on your horizontal datum it might work.

good luck!
