I'm trying to import a dxf (from librecad) into freecad. I would like to have one sketch with all the hexagons so I could pad this sketch on top of a circular base.
To me it looks like you only need one Sketch of the circular base, and another Sketch of one hexagon. I wouldn't make a Sketch that contains every hexagon, mainly because Sketcher Solver would take a prohibitively long time to solve such a Sketch. My suggestion id that you Pad your circular base, then Pad one hexagon (probably the center one) on top of the base, then use either Part Design WB > PolarPattern or MultiTransform to make the remaining hexagon solids.
Or you could use Part WB > Extrude to make an Extrude of one hexagon, then use Draft WB > Array to make the copies.
Either way, with that many objects in your model, FreeCAD will slow down significantly.
