Think of how you would design a metal grate. It's a simple model to create, right? Afterall, it's just a rectangle. But think of placing all those holes exactly. And if you have to change the model later? Forget about it!

 

That's where NX Pattern Component comes in. This feature creates copies of a component and lays them out in a pattern formation.

Pattern Component

Once created, these associative patterns can be edited or updated in response to changes in the model.  Multiple components can be patterned together using a single component pattern.

 

In this NX Quick Tips video, I give you a quick demo of this feature in NX 9.
