I have following assembly: Problematic assembly and I have following Dowel holes misaligned: Problematic dowel holes Now, both sets of holes (for both parts) were created using Linear Sketch Pattern tool and now I want to mate these parts "through" these dowel holes sets. The first option is to recheck Linear Sketch Pattern parameters for both sets, however is it possible to automatic creation of holes at exact position from first part?

Perhaps I'm not fully understanding you but it seems like what you are trying to do is create the dowels and the dowel holes in the same action; this is fairly straightforward.

Presumable you used Extruded Cut to make these holes, what you want to do is replace that feature with an Extruded Boss/Base using the same sketch and be sure to uncheck the Merge Entities box so that the extrusion is a separate body from your main part.

You need to Select all bodies in the scene and create an Intersect feature. Once again make sure that Merge Entities is turned off.

The final step is to use Insert>Feature>Split to export each of the bodies in the scene as individual parts so that you can combine them in assembly.

I hope this was the answer you were looking for
