Re: Mysterious gap

Checking the Dependency Graph I see a red so illegal operation. You should have made sketch006 within the body and not make a switch from modelling in Part design workbench to modelling in Part workbench

Re: How to use BooleanFragment

@ openbrain

I never used this function because I did not know why I should use it. Because of this example I see this is a very usefull function.
Can you make a tutorial about Boolean Fragments

Re: My Part Disappears When Adding a Pocket

Hi, welcome to the forum.
All your sketches look good, that is no problem.
the sketches are all mapped to a Face, I think there is the problem.
Try to add a Datum plane on top of the first Pad and map the sketches for the holes to this Datum plane.
