Re: Moving holes in a drawing

Really appreciate all the help you guys give me. It is much appreciated. I will try deleting the chamfers you suggest and see where that gets me.

Re: Access violation

OK so what's the difference between a Boolean operation and "Make compound"? What are the criteria for which is best to use in what circumstances?
