DriveWorks Pro 15: Circular Pattern [send feedback...]

Introduction

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Circular Pattern

ParameterTypeDescription
EqualSpacingTrue/FalseSets whether the instances are equally spaced
ReverseDirectionTrue/FalseSets whether the direction of rotation around the axis should be reversed
SkippedItemArrayPipe delimited string i.e. "1|-7|5|-54" Sets the list of skipped items in this circular pattern
SpacingAngleSets the spacing between instances of the circular pattern feature
Total InstancesIntegerSets the total number of instances in this circular pattern
GeometryPatternTrue/FalseSet the feature to pattern only the faces and edges of the original feature to decrease creation time
PropagateVisualPropertiesTrue/FalseSet the pattern to propagate colours, textures and cosmetic thread data to pattern instances
