Per the attached file, Datum A is determined by radial hole pattern. I have 3 questions:

  2. How many DOFs (Degrees of Freedom) for the DRF (Datum Reference Frame)?
  3. How to apply the MMB (Maximum Material Boundary)?

Jason answers these questions regarding the submitted part shown below, which includes a radial hole pattern as a datum feature.
