Group Holes

Used to select a solid element and the hole elements to be associated with the solid.

The solid and its associated hole(s) can be shapes, ellipses, and/or complex shapes that are in the same plane. Holes are not patterned and appear “transparent” in rendered views.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Drawing > Home > Groups
  • Ribbon: Modeling > Home > Groups
  • Toolbox: Groups
Note: One way to create a 3D solid of extrusion or revolution with a hole(s) in it is to use the Group Holes tool to associate the planar boundary element with its associated holes before generating the extruded or revolved solid.
